LOW-SEDIMENT LOAD, LOW VELOCITY Low-velocity, low-sediment streams form meanders. LOW-SEDIMENT LOAD, LOW VELOCITY Low-velocity, low-sediment streams form meanders. Meanders shift from side to side in a snaking motion. LOW-SEDIMENT LOAD, LOW VELOCITY Low-velocity, low-sediment streams form meanders. Meanders shift from side to side in a snaking motion. LOW-SEDIMENT LOAD, LOW VELOCITY Low-velocity, low-sediment streams form meanders. Meanders shift from side to side in a snaking motion. The current is faster at outside banks, which are eroded. LOW-SEDIMENT LOAD, LOW VELOCITY Low-velocity, low-sediment streams form meanders. Meanders shift from side to side in a snaking motion. Sediments get deposited in inside banks forming point bars. The current is faster at outside banks, which are eroded. LOW-SEDIMENT LOAD, LOW VELOCITY Low-velocity, low-sediment streams form meanders. Meanders shift from side to side in a snaking motion.
