Definition:

Erosion is the process of weather breaking down the the environment.  Wind, water, and rain are different ways that the environment can be broken down.  Erosion is a natural process that happens around us every day, but sometimes takes millions of years to observe the repercussions.  One example of a natural environment that has been eroded is the Grand Canyon.
