Erosion

What is erosion?

Erosion happens when rivers, oceans, ice and wind change the Earth’s shape.

What causes erosion?

The coastline is always changing shape. The water and wind batter cliff faces. Sand dunes can form when the wind blows the sand around and piles it up. Winter storms, changing weather and climate change are factors in causing erosion.
