Taking from hundreds to millions of years the rate of soil creation depends on precipitation and average temperatures. The strongest chemical weathering occurs in regions of the earth with high precipitation rates and high average yearly temperatures. Other areas experience little rainfall with low average temperatures experiencing lower rates of weathering. Taking between hundreds to millions of years to create makes soil a valuable, nonrenewable resource.
