    • Erosional processes
      • Hydraulic action
      • Attrition
        • This is when rocks smash together continuously which causes them to erode each other  making them smaller and smoother.
      • Abrasion
      • Corrosion
        • This is the chemical action of sea water. The acids in the salt water slowly dissolve rocks on the coast. Limestone and chalk are particularly prone to this process.
    • Hydraulic action. Abrasion. Corrosion. Attrition.
