    its been 2 years since i left school but itd say there are 4 processes of transportation - traction, saltation, suspension and solution, then mention what type of material each one transports. Then i'd say the reasons why rivers deposit it's loads such as flooding, shallow water inside meander, reduction in gradient etc

    I'm not sure if this is correct, but I'm currently learning about this topic so here goes...
    As the water flows along the river at a high speed, traction and saltation occurs. This is because the water has high energy, allowing large boulders to be carried with the water, and other rocks to be bounced off. As the water begins to lose energy, it no longer has enough energy to transport large boulders, but saltation and traction are still present. The rocks are mainly transported by suspension. The water slows down even more and reaches into a wide and flat valley where the water has no energy. Only suspension and solution occurs here.
