What is erosion? Wind or Rain wash away soil, sand or wears down rocks.
What is Deposition? When wind or rain slows down the particles that wear away settle and build up. They get deposited in one location and build up.
What is Compaction? It is when layers and layers of particles build up and over time become compacted by the weight of the layers.
