Explain what is meant by a river’s load, and describe how the load is carried.
Sediment load refers to the amount of sediment that a river can carry. Rivers carry their load in different ways. Large particles are pushed and rolled along the bottom of the river bed, and some sand is bounced along. Fast-moving water lifts sand and other small sediment and carries it downstream. Some larger particles of sediment are broken down by the water and carried away.
didn't see it on here so decided to put it)
A river is a naturally water flowing channel. Rivers originate from hills or mountains. Some rivers come from rain water and some from melting of snow. Flowing rivers carry lots of materials known as river’s load. They may be bed load and suspended load. River’s load consists of rocks, stones, and various large particles. Heavy load carried through riverbed and fine particles float in the water.
