Water

Kamenice - Tobogán, author: Jan Mertlík

Water has always been a significant geological agent perpetually affecting the surface of our planet. It markedly contributes to chemical and mechanical weathering of minerals and rocks, their transport to other locations, and finally to their re-deposition in the form of sedimentary rocks. The activity of water is also responsible for the origin of many geotouristically attractive sites, such as caves and rock cities.
