Fluvial processes involved in river valley and river channel formation: erosion (vertical and lateral), weathering and mass movement, transportation and deposition and factors affecting these processes (climate, slope, geology, altitude, aspect).
1. How do rivers transport material?
Draw a fully annotated diagram to show the four ways in which a river transports material. How will the kind of transportation be affected by the discharge and velocity of the river? What other factors will affect it?
2. What is river deposition? Where and why does it happen?
Watch this video very carefully. From it identify and explain in your own words:
What is deposition?
What are the circumstances which lead to deposition in a river?
Where is deposition likely to occur?
What landforms are created by depositon?
How does deposition lead to the formation of deltas?
