Asked in Diamonds
How can diamonds form at river beds?
Diamonds don't 'form' in river beds or in the sea bed where some are found. Diamonds are propelled into river beds and to the sea by water that flows over the kimberlite pipe where the diamonds are formed. Diamonds found in water are generally referred to as alluvial stones, meaning deposited in the water over a long period.

Asked in Lakes and Rivers
How are river beds eroded?
river beds are eroded because the four main types of erosion,attrition,abrasion,corrosion and hydraulic action slowly break away the rocks that are found on the river bed. Therefore as more rocks are eroded/transported off the bottom of the river bed, the river will effectively become deeper. This method also applies for channel width

Asked in Lakes and Rivers, Erosion and Weathering
What type of erosion is dominant in the upper course of a river?
Hydraulic action takes place in the upper course of a river. This process of erosion is to do with the force of the water against the beds and banks. There is also Abrasion/corrosion which is where the beds and banks are worn down by the river loads. It will throw tiny particles and stones sometimes at high velocity also causing the river to erode.
