geological process
Dynamic actions or events that occur at the earth's surface as a result of the application of natural forces resulting from gravity, temperature changes, freezing and thawing, chemical reactions, seismic shaking, and the agencies of wind and moving water, ice and snow.

Where and when a force exceeds the strength of the earth's material, that material is changed by deformations, translocations, or chemical reactions.
