Module 7: Module Notes: Weathering of the Lithosphere

Module 7: Module Notes: Weathering of the LithosphereWe will discuss the “external” processes that are shaping the landscape. The wearing away of rock and surface features involve three basic types of activities: weathering, mass wasting and erosion (collectively called “denudation “). This module covers these processes. First, the disintegration of rock material (“weathering”) is discussed. […]
