Question and answer
What land feature anywhere on Earth has been sculpted by physical and chemical weathering process?
The world is shaped by physical and chemical weathering of the Earth's surface. Weathering is the process of breaking material down into smaller and smaller pieces through a chemical and physical process. [ As volcanoes push new material up from the Earth's core, it's slowly being broken down by the process of weathering. The process of chemical weathering is brought on by the reaction of
different particles coming in contact with one another. The different substances absorb and dissolve rocks, breaking down its material. The resulting material has different characteristics and composition than before. Physical weathering is the process of rock breaking down without any chemical changes. The rock is simply reduced to a smaller and smaller substance but still has the same chemical composition.SCROLLDOWN TO SEE THE PICTURE: ]

What land feature anywhere on Earth has been sculpted by physical and chemical weathering process?
Weegy: Rainbow Bridge, Arizona WIND AND WATER EROSION (a land feature that has been sculpted by physical and chemical weathering process.) Arches and Bridges Rainbow Bridge, Paige, [ Arizona A natural bridge is begun when a river's meandering course creates a bend that nearly doubles back on itself. Water washes into and scours the inside wall of the canyon. After the river or stream cuts an opening through the narrow wall, the stream may change course taking a short cut under the bridge and eliminating the meander. The same erosional forces that enlarge arches also work to expand the opening under the new natural bridge. In this view a small canyon has been cut by the stream below the pillars of Rainbow Bridge. ] (More)
