Transportation Movement (Of sediment)

HideShow resource information
Traction
Larger pebbles and cobbles are rolled along the seabed (As large rocks are so heavy)
1 of 5
Suspension
Fine sediment is carried as a suspension in the water, making it look muddy or murky
2 of 5
Solution
Dissolved material (sediment) is carried along in solution so it cannot be seen
3 of 5
Saltation
Small pebbles are moved when one pebble hits another causing it to bounce. This bouncing can set up a chain reaction
