attrition
stones/pebbles knock against each other on the sea bed until its rounded
1 of 13
erosion
gradual destructing of rocks or sediment by water or wind
2 of 13
abrasion
the process of scraping/ wearing something away
3 of 13
saltation
small pebbles/stones are bounced of a surface and wear material away

transportation
landforms and rock fall roll around the seabed
5 of 13
suspension
fine/light material carried along the water
6 of 13
solution
minerals dissolved in water and then then carried along
7 of 13
traction
small pebbles/stones carried along the river bed
8 of 13
saltation
large pebbles/rocks bounced along the river bed
9 of 13
hydrolich action
a motion of water against a rocks surface
10 of 13
lateral erosion
erodes from side to side making a wide channel
11 of 13
solution
chemical reactions on the sea bed
12 of 13
verticle erosion
erodes beds and sides, when this happens the channel dependant and thus the river to beable to hold water
