The transfer of energy in the Earth’s systems is fundamental to understanding
the many processes that shape the surface of the Earth.
Potential to kinetic energy transfer is especially important in understanding
the evolution of landforms.
Potential to kinetic energy transfer is the driving force behind wind
and water movement leading to erosion and weathering.
Streams, rivers, currents and waves are all agents of energy transfer
and are fundamental to shaping landforms on Earth.
Beach processes, sedimentation and landslides illustrates this energy
