River transport its load by;

  • Traction process/rolling/sliding-The large and heavy particles of the river .Load are rolled/dragged along the river bed
  • Saltation process –particles that are not too heavy but cannot remain suspended in water are momentarily lifted by the water turbulence and at times dropped onto the river bed
  • Solution –soluble minerals are dissolved in the river water and carried away in solution
  • Suspension-light particles of the load are carried and maintained within the turbulence of flowing water.
