Weathering and Erosion : LUSENET : Introductory Geology, Oswego State : One Thread

How can you tell the difference between weathering and erosion?

Weathering is the process that breaks up rock. This is done either chemically (like acid rain) or physically (like ice wedging). Erosion is the process that actually removes the sediment from the site to be deposited elsewhere.
