What is intemperismo?

Intemperismo, also known as weathering, refers to the complex process of the breakdown and alteration of rocks, minerals, or any other solid geological materials on the Earth's surface. It occurs through a combination of physical, chemical, and biological processes, resulting in the disintegration and decomposition of rocks into smaller fragments or new substances. Physical weathering involves the mechanical breaking down of rocks due to temperature changes, pressure, frost, or the actions of water or wind. Chemical weathering involves the alteration of rock composition due to reactions with water, air, acids, or other substances. Biological weathering is caused by the activities of plants, animals, and microorganisms. The process of intemperismo is continuous and plays a crucial role in shaping the Earth's surface and facilitating the formation of soils.
