QuestionsAnswers
ErosionWhen something slowly gets worn off like rocks in a river.
Hydraulic ActionA type of erosion that happens when water erodes the side of the river transporting the sediment down the river.
AttritionA type of erosion rocks smash into each other creating smaller rocks that continue the cycle.
AbrasionA form of erosion in a river where rocks gring along each other creating very small pieces of sediment where it is transported down the river.
SolutionWhere rocks like limestone slowly dissolve into the water to make very, very small pieces of sediment.
ArchAn arch that is created when waves smash into the back of a cave to make their way through.
