how did the different forms of rock develop?
the further a river progresses on its way to the sea , the more the river has reduced the size of the rocks it has carries away from the mountains: large angular blocks become smaller round stones, which become pebbles, which then become sand and ultimately mud. when it finally reaches the sea, the river is turbid with sand and mud. the river’s sand is deposited on the seashore, since it is heavier than the mud. the mud is carried into the sea and repeatedly washed back on shore. if the sea is calm , then the mud sinks and settles onto the sea bottom.
