3 Factors that accelerate water erosion

We explain what water erosion is, what causes it and what factors accelerate it. Also, what is pluvial and fluvial erosion. In its movements and changes of state, water slowly erodes the rock. Water erosion is the removal of soil by water and transportation of the eroded materials away from the point of removal. Water action due to rain erodes the soil and causes activities like gully, rill, and stream erosion leading to the downstream effects of flooding and sedimentation.
