Andesite exposed in different parts of Ankara has different weathering categories varying from fresh to residual soil . In this study, the variation of the geomechanical properties of the andesite due to weathering is investigated in three selected sites of Ankara, through optical microscope, X-ray diffraction analyses, major element analyses, pressuremeter tests, physicomechanical tests, and seismic refraction method. The data gathered from the field and laboratory studies were used to assess the characteristics of the weathering zones. Based on the data obtained from this study, an idealized weathering profile is assessed. No bearing capacity and consolidation settlement problems exist in the area.
Weathering and erosion are both important natural processes to understand because they influence the shape of our land. For example, weathering and erosion create canyons, such as the Grand Canyon located in Arizona. Weathering and erosion also influence factors such as safe locations to live or build structures and whether or not farming, such as the farms used by doTERRA to source essential oils, can succeed in a certain area. When it comes to building structures it is important to remember how these forces work.
The processes of weathering, erosion and deposition leave distinctive features that allow them to be identified. Textbook Connection: read Chapter 7 (Weathering, Erosion, and Soil). Types of Weathering: Chemical weathering: breaking down rock by changing its chemical composition, examples include hydrolysis, carbonation, oxidation, acid rain. Applied Geology, Forensic Geology: Murder at Prospect Cove A Crime Scene Investigation. Geologic Map of Vermont. Rocks, Minerals, Weathering and Erosion.
In this article we shall present a brief overview of erosion and of mechanical weathering. We can be brief because the erosional processes involved will be discussed at length in subsequent articles, so there is no need to do more than sketch out the topic in brief. Geologists make a distinction between weathering and erosion: weathering breaks rocks but leaves them in place; whereas the processes of erosion are capable both of breaking rocks and transporting the broken fragments (clasts)

Weathering is the breaking down of rocks, soil and minerals as well as artificial materials through contact with the Earth’s atmosphere, biota and waters. Weathering occurs in situ, roughly translated to: with no movement, and thus should not be confused with erosion, which involves the movement of rocks and minerals by agents such as water, ice, snow, wind, waves and gravity and then being transported and deposited in other locations. Two important classifications of weathering processes exist – physical and chemical weathering; each sometimes involves a biological component. In addition, many of Earth’s landforms and landscapes are the result of weathering processes combined with erosion and re-deposition. There are three types of weathering.
Physical Geology is a comprehensive introductory text on the physical aspects of geology, including rocks and minerals, plate tectonics, earthquakes, volcanoes, glaciation, groundwater, streams, coasts, mass wasting, climate change, planetary geology and much more. It has a strong emphasis on examples from western Canada, especially British Columbia, and also includes a chapter devoted to the geological history of western Canada. The book is a collaboration of faculty from Earth Science departments at Universities and Colleges across British Columbia and elsewhere. A summary of the weathering products of some of the common minerals present in rocks is provided in Table . Typical Weathering Products.
