April 9, 2019 1-3 pm Weathering and Erosion
Surface processes such as weathering and erosion transform mountains and other landforms. Rocks and minerals disintegrate into sediment, and it is transported to other areas, building new landforms. Students will be moving from station to station performing experiments to better understand these forces of nature.
