Stream Deposits

Depositional activity of water is a logical counterpart to its erosional activity.


Material removed by water flow or in dissolved form becomes re-deposited or re-precipitated upon a decrease in stream energy or a change in water chemistry. This process leads to the formation of detrital sediments and chemogenic sediments, respectively, often with specific mineral or fossil contents.
