the process by which water, ice, heat, and wind act to break down rocks weathering
the process by which particles of rock are removed from their source and transported by the flow of water and the actions of gravity, wind, and ice erosion
the process by which water, ice, wind, and gravity drop newly formed sediments deposition
the process by which regions of Earth's crust are raised to a higher elevation uplift
when mountains form due to the eruption of molten rock onto Earth's surface, adding material to Earth's surface volcanism
