Is It Weathering or Erosion?
5. Point Bars
Royal Gorge

Water velocity in a river alternately speeds up or slows down as water flows past the S-shaped meander curves. Rivers are excellent transporters of huge amounts of sediments. When deposition occurs on the inside curves, sediment that is left behind may have traveled great distances from its natural point of origin further upstream.
Do the Point Bars in this illustration best demonstrate weathering or erosion?
