Abrasion - The sandpaper liek effect of sediment in a river rubbing and colliding against the river bed and banks, smoothing them out.
Hydraulic Action - The sheer force of water alone eroding rock. Associated with cavitation, joints/cracks forced apart as trapped air (from eddies) explosivley decompresses.
Solution - Certain solbule minearlas are elached away from the rock by the river (may be comprised of weak carbonic acid)
Attrition - The particles suspended in the river collide with each other, chipping and smoothing them so they become smaller and smoother downstream (ie pebbles)

Suspension - Small particles are ligth enough to be entrained in the flow of the river itself.
Traction - The alrger particles are rolled along the river bed.
Saltation - Particles bounce along the riverbed. Cycles of suspension and deposition in periods of high velocity

Erosion - Wearing away of rock by water (river)
Deposition - Energy of the water drops thus material can no longer be carried
Transportation - Energy of the river enough to move eroded and weathered material downstream.
