    For each of the situations below, state whether it describes erosion, weathering, or possibly both.

    Answer:

    Erosion

    Explanation:

    The blowing away of the top layer of the soil at a Michigan farm is best described as scenario that shows wind erosion.

    Erosion is the removal of the top layer of the earth on which plant grows. In short is the washing away of soil by stream or blowing away by wind.

    When soil is blow away, it is a pure case of erosion. The process of erosion usually follows weathering or sometime occurs together with it.

    Weathering is the physical disintegration and chemical decomposition of rocks to form sediments and soils.

    Often times, the process of weathering and erosion occurs together. It is loose weathering products that are carried away during erosion.

    In the soil layer at Michigan, the process of erosion by wind is current taking place by ablation.
