what is weathering and how does it shape landforms?

erosion is when the weathered material is transported to another place by water wind or ice. erosion produces landforms that are often tall and jagged but deposition usually produces landforms on flat low land. weathering is considered a destructive process in landform formation. the extent of weathering often depends on the makeup of the ...【Get Price】
