A river has three sections, upper, middle and lower. Meander bends occur in the middle section when the river is not as high up and has a shallower slope (gradient) so it has more power to erode sideways. It also has a greater volume, as more tributaries have joined, so less water is touching the banks of the river thus there is less friction acting on it and it has more power. A meander starts at the deeper side of the river where it flows faster and has more power to erode sideways. i don't have time to finish this go to a siter for more information.
A meander is a bend or such like in a river
A meander is a S-shaped curve in a river.
A meander is a bend in the river created by erosion on the outer banks.
Meanders are named after the River Meander or Menderes (spelling?).
Flowing water erodes soil from one river bank and deposits soil onto the other.
As a river deposits sediment on the inside of a meander and erodes the outside of the meander, the meander migrates toward the outside edge
A bend in a river.
The water slows while running through a meander - allowing silt to separate ot and build up along the banks and river bed.
a bend in the river
A meander in general is a bend in a sinuous watercourse
In a river
A meander is a bend in a river which will eventually erode to form an ox-bow lake which is a thing in a river! A meander is formed around a ox-bow lake. Your Welcome!! ;)
it is a river that turns and has curves.
It varies according to which meander you are referring to.
A meander is a bend or a curve in a river.
Meander means wind ( pronounced wined ). e.g. The river meandered through the valley. The river wound through the valley.
a meander is a sharp turn in a river. also the meander would of been eroded to make a sharp curve :)
Erosion is caused when a river turns at a meander. When the water splashes against the side of the meander. After a long long time the edge of the meander is worn away. This is erosion.
Meander derives from the river known to the ancient Greeks as Maiandros or Maeander. Which nowadays is known as the Buyuk Menderes River in southwest Turkey.
maybe a meander
the middle course
the answer is meander
