  • River Changes Downstream
    • Downstream
      • Less erosion
      • Suspension is dominant
      • Deposition of fine material
      • Large amounts of load that is small in size
    • Upstream
      • Vertical occurs most often
      • Hydraulic Action + Abrasion + Attrition occur
      • There is some traction and saltation
      • Larger load size
    • Middle
      • Some vertical erosion
      • LATERAL EROSION most important
      • Suspension is main transportation method
      • Deposition more obvious
      • Load size reduces due to erosion.
