Definition of Erosion

Erosion is a natural process in which the surface of the Earth – soil, rock and other surface material - is worn down and moved from one location to another by erosive agents. Erosive agents are water, ice (glaciers), snow, wind, plants and animals. Humans can also be forces for erosion, and can erode surfaces 10-15 times faster than natural processes.
