Question: Outline the process of sub-aerial weathering in the development of coastal landscapes

Answer: Weathering is the breakdown of rocks in situ; there are three types for developing coastal landscapes. Biological weathering is the breakdown of rocks due to organic activity such as tree roots. Chemical weathering is the breakdown of rocks by changing its chemical composition such as carbonation weathering. Lastly, mechanical weathering is the breakdown of rocks without changing its chemical composition such as freeze-thaw and salt weathering.

Any feedback would be great :smile:
