Statement: Meandering rivers

Abstract: River meander development with respect to time in an area of relatively low slope angle.


Rivers channels can develop a sinuous course through their valleys and lowlands. River with channels with high sinuosity are called meandering rivers. These systems develop over time, by outward migration of the cutbank and simultaneous growth of the pointbar.
