Soil development and formation is a dynamic process than static. Weathering is the process of soil formation and development. Soil weathering is the changing minerals and rocks change through both physically and chemically into the four components. Thus, soil weathering refers to the integral process of soil development (Hillel, 15). Soil undergoes development with numerous chemical, physical, and biological formations to enhance the main process of weathering with the erosion-associated type of activity (Huggett 163). There are five major soil-forming factors identified scientifically over time in the development of soil. These factors include topography, living organisms, climate, parent materials, and time (Fullen and Catt 5).
