What does global climate have to do with erosion rates? Not so much, say scientists contesting earlier studies

What does global climate have to do with erosion rates? Not so much, say scientists contesting earlier studies

Geoscientists have been intrigued by a potential link between erosion rates at the Earth's surface and changes in global climate. A new study now calls into question this link. A team of researchers re-examined 30 locations with reported accelerated erosion after the onset of glacial-interglacial cycles a few million years ago. In nearly all of the locations, the proposed link between erosion and global climate could not be confirmed.
