Erosion
In earth science , EROSION is the action of surface processes (such as water flow or wind ) that removes soil , rock , or dissolved material from one location on the Earth\'s crust , and then transport it away to another location (not to be confused with weathering which involves no movement). The particulate breakdown of rock or soil into clastic sediment is referred to as physical or mechanical erosion; this contrasts with chemical erosion, where soil or rock material is removed from an area by its dissolving into a solvent (typically water), followed by the flow away of that solution. Eroded sediment or solutes may be transported just a few millimetres, or for thousands of kilometres

Emmer
EMMER WHEAT, also known as FARRO especially in Italy, or HULLED WHEAT, is a type of awned wheat . Emmer is a tetraploid (2n=4x=28 chromosomes). The domesticated species are Triticum turgidum subsp. dicoccum and Triticum turgidum conv. durum. The wild species is called Triticum turgidum subsp. dicoccoides. The principal difference between the wild and the domestic species is that the ripened seed head of the wild species shatters and spreads the seed onto the ground, while in the domesticated emmer, the seed head remains intact, thus making it easier for humans to harvest the grain. Along with einkorn wheat , emmer was one of the first crops domesticated in the Near East

. It was widely cultivated in the ancient world, but is now a relict crop in mountainous regions of Europe and Asia
