Annual controlled floods from one of America's largest dams are rebuilding the sandbars of the iconic Colorado River.
The shape of deformed sediments at the surface may allow researchers to estimate the cumulative slip along thrust faults such as the Chelungpu fault in Taiwan.
Thick layers of mineral deposits that coat the aqueducts could provide a vast pool of information about climate during the Roman Empire.
The shape can also reveal information on the force required to carve sediment from its bank.
Researchers use computer simulations to find the date and earthquake source of an ancient tsunami that deposited sediment in a Hawaii sinkhole.
In a flat sand bed, water creates undulating features.
New study rethinks dynamics of runoff-driven erosion in response to rainstorms.
Scientist creates a numerical model that explores sediment transport.
Colonies of tiny caddisflies slow stream sediment transport with their silk nets.
Analysis of the Fraser River suggests that riverbed sediments shift abruptly depending on river slope changes and water speed.
