You have asked this question in weather category. I assume that you are asking about the same weathering which deals with the decomposition of rocks. Weathering occurs when rocks, soils, minerals start decomposing after coming to the direct contact with the atmosphere and environment. Some people confuse weathering with erosion which occurs because of ice, water, wind and gravity. There are two types of weathering such as Physical and chemical weathering. Physical weathering involves decomposition of rocks because of direct contact with the atmosphere such as heat, water, ice etc whereas chemical weathering uses biologically produced chemicals or atmospheric chemicals to decompose the rocks.

Weathering is quite interesting topic. I hope this introductory information helped building your interest.
