Water Flow. And Deposition. By:Jessica Munn Bailey Northrup Heather MacFarlane. Definitions. Deposition-the process of erosion stops when the transported particles fall out of the transporting medium and settle on a surface.
Erosion is defined as the removal of soil , sediment, regolith , and rock fragments from the landscape. Most landscapes show obvious evidence of erosion. Erosion is responsible for the creation of hills and valleys. It removes sediments from areas that were once glaciated, shapes the shorelines of lakes and coastlines, and transports material downslope from elevated sites.
