What is soil erosion? What factors responsible for soil erosion?
hii ankit nandan
Soil is naturally removed by the action of water or wind: such 'background' (or 'geological') soil erosion has been occurring for some 450 million years, since the first land plants formed the first soil. Even before this, natural processes moved loose rock, or regolith, off the Earth's surface, just as has happened on the planet Mars.
Factors responsible for soil erosion are -
1)Wind. When strong winds blow, the topsoil along with the organic matter is carried away by the wind. ...
2)Water. When it rains in the hilly areas, the soil gets washed away towards the plains.
