Geo-diversity---weathering and erosion
Due to subtropical climate, weathering effect is significant. Seasonal typhoons and torrential rains produce various landforms and micro-forms of landscapes. The differentiation of weathering and erosion contribute to geo-diversity. In the coastal areas, sea water and salt play significant roles in shaping landforms. In the alpine areas, physical weathering is the main shaping power. Typhoon and torrential rains contribute even more to the diversity of landforms.
