Stop 10 - Meandering Curves

This section of the river is a good example of how the river meanders and has some sharp bends. The river changes direction at a slow, but steady pace over time. Occasionally, rivers will cut new
channels and the abandoned old channels become small ponds or lakes called “oxbows.” If you look at an aerial photo of this area, it is more apparent how the river has cut new channels over time.Note the deposition of new sediment on one side and the erosion and undercutting of the river bank on the opposite side.
