Sediment Transport and Movable Beds
Transportation of sediment is an important and frequent phenomenon in rivers. Sediment is mobilized as bed-load with particles sliding, saltating, and rolling over the river bed, or as a suspended-load, where particles move with the turbulent water flow away from the bed.
