Fluvial processes. Fluvial processes include the motion of sediment and erosion or deposition on the river bed. Erosion by moving water can happen in two ways.

Firstly, the movement of water across the stream bed exerts a shear stress directly onto the bed. If the cohesive strength of the substrate is lower than the shear exerted, or the bed is composed of loose sediment which can be.
