Sediment transport
Sediment transport the movement of solid particles (sediment), typically due to a combination of gravity acting on the sediment, and/or the movement of the fluid in which the sediment is entrained. An understanding of sediment transport is typically used in natural systems, where the particles are clastic rocks (sandgravelboulders, etc.), mud, or clay; the fluid is air, water, or ice; and the force of gravity acts to move the particles due to the sloping surface on which they are resting. Sediment transport due to fluid motion occurs in rivers, the oceanslakesseas, and other bodies of water, due to currents and tides; in glaciers as they flow, and on terrestrial surfaces under the influence of wind. Sediment transport due only to gravity can occur on sloping surfaces in general, including hillslopesscarps, cliffs, and the continental shelf—continental slope boundary.

Наносы
Нано́сы — твёрдые частицы, переносимые водным или воздушным потоком.

Существуют русловые и нерусловые наносы. Наносы также подразделяются по форме транспорта на влекомые и взвешенные. Русловые наносы обычно являются влекомыми, нерусловые — взвешенными.

Перемещение наносов является сущностью русловых процессов.
