  • Created from combinations of specific sedimentary processes and depositional environments.

  • Two major categories

    • Overbank

    • Lateral accretion mechanisms

  • Influenced by drainage basin and local hydraulic controls.

  • Provide linkages to a diverse range of Earth's surficial processes, including human–environment interaction.

  • Active landforms include alluvial fans, terraces, deltas, and floodplains.

    • Subdivided into natural levees, channel bars, backswamps, infilled channels, and crevasse deposits. Fluvial terraces are relict floodplains above active river valleys

  • Key information to understand fluvial adjustment to past hydroclimatic regimes.

  • Fluvial-dominated deltas- sandy river mouth deposits transported as bed load.

  • Applications in economics, flooding, and environmental management and restoration.
