Geologists study these varied processes to understand, and sometimes predict the behavior of geomorphic processes. This is important for Californians because we have a quite varied landscape from the northwest (forested, many rivers), to the east (dry, snow accumulation in the mountains, and basin and range faulting), southwest (transform faults, and variable precipitation), and west (coastal=wave and tide action, heavy precipitation and river input).
We will examine now the various components of geomorphic processes that create the landforms which geologists study. Keep in mind that a geomorphic landform is essentially a response of the land (sediments) to the forces operating on it.
These forces as stated above include, but may not be limited to, a single force. The forces are: gravity, water, ice, wind, and tectonics. Fig 1. Sue Flood-Getty Images 2 Written by K. Sean Daniels, MS candidate, Geology, San Diego State University, 10/16/16 Fluvial (River) Landforms There are two styles of fluvial landforms that we will look at in this lab. They are: braided rivers and meandering rivers. Braided rivers are rivers that are essentially choked with an abundance of sediment or have a high degree of slope (a quick change in elevation). The river response to not being able to move the abundant sediment is to break into many, many channels.
