Deposition is when the material being transported by a river is dropped.
Material deposited by a river is known as _________________?
Material deposited by a river is known as sediment.
The larger the material, the higher the velocity needed to transport it. True or false?
The larger the material, the higher the velocity needed to transport it.
Deposition occurs whenever a river loses energy and velocity falls. Under which of the following conditions will this not happen?
Deposition does not typically occur on the outside bend of a meander because the velocity is high.
Where is deposition most likely to occur?
Deposition is most likely to occur in shallow water due to energy levels being lower.
