Wearing away by scraping or rubbing. abrasion
separation of successive thin shells, or spalls, from massive rock. exfoliation
a reaction with oxygen, occurring when rock is exposed to oxygen in the air or in water; Elements in the rock such as iron or copper combine with oxygen to form new chemical compounds. oxidation
