Weathering and Erosion

From the: Forces Shaping Earth's Surface Series

This program illustrates the everyday, real-life processes of weathering and erosion. Easy-to-understand examples of weathering help students differentiate between the processes of mechanical and chemical weathering. Vivid footage of processes such as freezing, thawing, condensation, and rusting help students grasp how weathering works. Erosion, the process by which materials are transported from one place to another, is addressed via action-oriented footage. Important terminology includes: mechanical weathering, landslides, abrasion, freezing, thawing, chemical weathering, oxidation, acid rain, moving water, wind, and glaciers.
