Can you beat our quiz?
Deposition is when the material being transported by a river is dropped.
Material deposited by a river is known as sediment.
The larger the material, the higher the velocity needed to transport it.
Deposition does not typically occur on the outside bend of a meander because the velocity is high.
Deposition is most likely to occur in shallow water due to energy levels being lower.
