The three main types of wind erosion are suspension, saltation and creep. Suspension is the blowing of tiny particles into the air where they may be carried for long distances, saltation is the repeated lifting and dropp... More »

The three major types of erosion are the transporting of soil or rocks by moving water, wind or ice. Water is the primary force behind erosion. The waves of the ocean, movement of a river and falling of rain are all ways... More »

Wind and water erosion are least likely to affect igneous sills and cooled lava flows. Limestone, basalt and quartzite are also unlikely to undergo erosion or weathering, as are sandstone and chert. Soil and soft rocks s... More »

Three main natural forces bring about erosion: wind, water and ice. When water flows and moves heavily, it can cause soil erosion. Strong winds, especially in the desert, erode sand dunes. Glacial erosion has significant... More »

Soil erosion is caused when elements such as wind and rain remove surface soil. The eroded soil is then carried away and deposited by the wind or rain. More »

Water, wind and tillage are the three greatest factors in erosion. Erosion occurs through soil detachment, movement and deposition, and pollutes nearby waterways, often creating an unstable base that can lead to a perman... More »
