In this section we highlight the geologic processes affecting
rocks within Crater Lake National Park. We provide links to those materials that have documented these processes.
Geological Processes Affecting Rocks
Caused by events at the Earth's surface
Weathering (disintegration of rock in place)
Mass wasting (removal by gravity)
3. Waves, currents,
tides and tsunami
Caused by events inside the Earth
A. Continental drift - See
