  • Erosion, Deposition and Transportation
    • Erosion
      • Hydraulic Action
        • The force of the water breaks rock particles away
      • Abrasion
        • Rocks scrape and rub against the channel
      • Attrition
        • Rocks smash into each other
      • Solution
        • River dissolves some type of rock
    • Transportation
      • Traction
        • Large rocks are pushed along the river bed by the force of the water
      • Saltation
        • Pebble sized rocks are bounced along the river bed
      • Suspension
        • Small particles are carried along by the water
      • Solution
