The process of taking away top soil by wind,water is called soil erosion.

Factors that cause soil erosion are;

2) Overgazing

3)  Leaving the land uncultivated after ploughing

When these rivers moving rapidly over the surface of the land, these rivers wash away the topsoil. This washing away of the valuable topsoil is called erosion.The cutting of trees and deforestation increases the rate of erosion.

Soil is naturally removed by the action of water or wind: such 'background' (or 'geological') soil erosion has been occurring for some 450 million years, since the first land plants formed the first soil. Even before this, natural processes moved loose rock, or regolith, off the Earth's surface, just as has happened on the planet Mars.
