River Bed Processes

  • Adrian E. Scheidegger

Abstract

When speaking about river bed processes, one understands those processes that involve an interaction between a river and the sedimentary particles that may at one time or another be part of its bed. This includes the transportation of sediment, the formation of the river bed and the silting up of channels. However, erosional processes proper (including the sideways action of rivers bends) are usually dealt with separately.
