Hi my name is Rohan and as you can see I am standing next to a river but have you ever wondered about the processes that shaped it. Well I'm about to show and tell you
Rivers erosion occurs through 4 different processes:
There are are 4 different processes of transportation
ok let's move on to Deposition
Deposition is in which sediments, soil and rock are added to a landform or land mass
Wind, ice, water, and gravity transport previously weathered surface material.
Hydraulic action: is were water forces air into the cracks and holes in the rock and soil helping to break them up. Abrasion: is when the rocks and stones that are carried along the river bash into the bed and banks wereing them away. Attrition: is when the rocks and the stones carreed by the river were each other down as they bash in to each other. solution: particles from the rock and soil of the riverbed and banks get disolved in the river water.
so that was the river processes hope you enjoyed
Traction: Is when large boulders are rolled along the river bed. Saltation: Is when small boulders and rocks are bounced along the riverbed. Suspension: Is when lighter smaller bits of rock and soil are carried along with the flow of the river. Solution: is material is disolved in the water and carried along with it.
Which, at the most the loss of energy in the fluid, is deposited, building up layers of sediment.
