First, weathering breaks down rock, and then erosion transports the material. Deposition occurs and sediments begin to accumulate. Over time these sediment layers lithify and become stone. Sediment Deposited in the Ocean Sometimes the erosion and deposition cycle is repeated. Sediment eventually makes its way from the high points of continents, down through rivers, and into oceans. conglomerate shale sandstone weathering erosion deposition compaction lithication conglomerate shale sandstone weathering erosion deposition compaction lithication Some photos courtesy of USFWS.
