Transcript of Deposition

In the picture you can see that the ocean has deposited sand along the beach. Where two types of bodies of water meet the water slows down. That is where deposition happens! After a flood there can be large boulders and other sediments all around.
Deposition, Erosion, and Landslides
Causes and effects of deposition
What Is Deposition
The natural process of depositing a substance in rocks or soil.

When the water flowing in a river slows down, it deposits sediments. Large rocks are the first to settle to the bottom. After a flood, large boulders can be scattered all around.

To have deposition you must first have erosion and landslides. Erosion breaks up the rocks into small sediments. The landslides carry the sediments to the rivers.The river with the sediments in it slows down and stops flowing. Then, sediments settle to the bottom.
Definition: Deltas are a triangular tract of sediment deposited at the mouth of a river, typically where it diverges into several outlets.

Examples of deposition

Some other causes of deposition is the wind slowing down. Since the wind pushes the water forward if the wind stops or slows down than the water will stop flowing. When the water stops the sediments will settle to the bottom.
