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.  The Colorado River runs through the canyon, which scientist believe took millions of years to eat away at the soil, which later turned into one of the natural wonders of the world.
