What causes the most erosion?



  1. 0 Votes

    Erosion, the breaking down of soil particles, can be caused by both human activities and natural occurrences. Human activities, like construction and agriculture, actually account for ten times more erosion than natural processes. Through deforestation, humans strip the land of surface soils and exploit it to natural forces that cause erosion. Water, ice, and wind also contribute to erosion. When it rains, the force of the water causes the soil to shift and lose particles. As ice expands, it rips through the rock and soil, ultimately causing it to shift.
