Do humans have anything to do with weathering and or erosion? Explain

Yes, depending on how we take care of earth, earth will take care of us. Many storms occur based on how we take care of the water and air on earth.

What is weathering?

Weathering is the process of breaking down and weakening sediments that will be moved by erosion.

Are erosion and weather dependent on one another? Explain

Yes- They both need to occur for the cycle to continue.

What is the difference between weathering and erosion?

Weathering is the process of breaking parts of the earth down Erosion Gets rid of the elements of the earth that have moved and are left behind.
