Deposition Gracie Rodriguez

There is something that makes air deposit soil to another place. Do you know what it is? It is called Deposition! An example of deposition is: There is an island and a coastline. A strong gust of wind suddenly blew in making soil from the island go and make the coastline bigger. That is called deposition. There is a root word in there. It is deposit. erosion and deposition are kind of like partners. deposition is a good thing and a bad thing. It is a good thing because it makes our state or even country a bigger place. But it also makes the smaller places like Hawaii a smaller place. Anyways, you can check out more on deposition and erosion here at!

Random Links[edit]

OK, so is there any particular reason why we're including random links to random geologists in this article? This is a particular article about a specific branch of geology (sedimentology), so this is like saying "here's some other examples of people who've done engineering in their lives" on an article on Bernouli's (sp?) Principle. I've also edited the article to remove redundant words, and put in some bits about exactly what transports the sediment. Also, I've reworded it to make it clearer how the order of erosion-->transport-->deposition works (at least I hope it's clearer). (talk) 16:27, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Nonsensical babble? Or is it me?[edit]

This theory is logically similar to the literal compact of the area in deposition temperature which refers and relates to the geological term of erosion. Erosion is also similar to the reflection for the biology in the terms of deposition and erosion. This word in particular is usually associated with the real relating word of decomposition, which is a completely opposing matter of science and geological terms in science.

I consider myself fairly well-versed in the sciences, and also in the English language, having used it for over 40 years... but I cannot for the life of me figure out what this paragraph means. The words appear to be English — maybe I've suffered a stroke and don't know it yet? Can anyone enlighten me and explain what concept this is attempting to convey? I'd fix the sentences myself, if only I understood them.  Groll†ech (talk) 00:02, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

Looks almost like random wordism to me. 'Twas added by an ip the other day and I've no clue what the ip was trying to say ... so I've chopped it. If anyone can interpret the jumble of words, feel free to rewrite and add it back. Cheers, Vsmith (talk) 01:26, 8 May 2012 (UTC)
