Sverigeguiden Gapminder: Unveiling the beauty of statistics for a fact based world view. Biosphere: Erosion Erosion is the process that breaks things down. As far as we're concerned, erosion is the breakdown of the continents and the land around you. The overall effect of breaking down and weathering the land is called denudation. Denudation is the process of erosion. In nature, large things are broken down into smaller things. Boulders become sand. Erosion is an easy idea to understand. Things don't just disappear. Mass wasting can happen two ways: 1) mechanical, similar to breaking a rock with a hammer; and 2) chemical, similar to pouring acid on a rock to dissolve it. A surefire way to tell what is happening is to check the color of the rock. Erosion happens at the tops of mountains and under the soil. Or search the sites for a specific topic.
