The sedimentation process, moreover, raises river channels above the level of the nearby terrain.
Varying winds may348 drive currents this way and that, causing alternations in sedimentation.
By sedimentation, and filtration through canvas, cinders and sand, the water is clarified and turned into the creeks again clean.
Where oceanic currents are annually reversed by monsoons, sedimentation may be regularly varied, or interrupted, once a year.
This fact fits in very nicely with the influence of temperature on sedimentation.
The subject is closely related to geography, climatology, sedimentation, and hydrology.
sedimentation is still going on at river mouths and along the coasts, where deltas are being built and mangrove thickets flourish.
For instance, an igneous rock may become a schist without going through the intermediate stage of sedimentation.
Such ores are not always easy to discriminate from ores resulting primarily from sedimentation.
Through the sorting processes of sedimentation,—the same processes which form sandstone, shale, and limestone.
