Deposits of earth, sand, gravel, and other transported matter, made by rivers, floods, or other causes, upon land not permanently submerged beneath the waters of lakes or seas.
sediments deposited by a stream.
Eroded material that gets carried downstream by the current of the stream or river. Alluvial deposits are areas in streams or rivers where alluvium does not continue flowing downstream, thus forming a deposit.
A fine deposit of earth, sand, gravel and other transported materials which have been washed in and deposited by rivers, floods or other causes to rest on land, not permanently submerged.

The deposits of matter such as clay, silt, sand, clay, mud, or soil which are deposited on riparian land in the process of alluvion.If you have purchased a foreclosed property that has alluvium, you are fortunate.You are in the process of gaining land and you likely are located near a river, which is a key selling point when it is time to resell your property.

Sometimes called silt it is made up of the fine soil and debris left after a river floods or deposits its load.
Material of any particle size that has been deposited by moving water
Unconsolidated gravel, sand, and finer rock debris deposited principally by running water. Found locally on the floors of canyons and valleys.
Sediment deposited by streams and rivers.
A general term for any sedimentary accumulations deposited by comparatively recent actions of rivers. It thus includes sediment laid down in river beds, flood plains, and alluvial fans.
is the sand, silt and gravel deposited by running water. Alluvial channels flow through bed and banks comprised of unconsolidated alluvium.
Sediment eroded from adjacent areas and deposited by running water in and along rivers and streams.
Sand, gravel, and silt deposited by rivers and streams in a valley bottom.
Sediment (mud, sand, and gravel) laid down by flowing water. The largest particles (sand and gravel) tend to accumulate within the channel itself. Particles of clay, silt, and fine sand are small enough to be suspended in flowing water. When the stream overflows its banks, these particles can be distributed across the valley floor. These overbank or flood deposits are the most common contexts in which buried archaeological sites are found. Stream valley floors are underlain by deposits of alluvium and often contain buried archaeological sites.
Any sediment deposited by flowing water, as in a river bed, floodplain or delta.
Unconsolidated beds of sand, gravel, silt, and clay deposited by flowing water.
Detrital sediment deposited on the floors of fluvial channels during low discharge or on adjacent flood plains during flood events; the sediment transported by streams;
materials transported and deposited by the movement of water. Generally not used to describe sediments in lakes and seas.
Unconsolidated clay, silt, sand or gravel deposited during relatively recent geological time by a stream or other water body.
Sediment or loose material such as clay, silt, sand, gravel, and larger rocks deposited by moving water.
The clay, silt, sand, gravel, or similar material deposited by running water.
Sand, clay or mud deposited as sediment on riparian land.
Sand, gravel, silt, and clay deposited adjacent to modern streams and derived from erosion of surface sediments elsewhere in the watershed or from valley walls.
silt, sand, clay, gravel, and other loose rock material deposited by flowing water, as in a riverbed or delta.
general term for sediments of gravel, sand, silt, clay, or other particulate rock material deposited by flowing water, usually in the beds of rivers and streams, on a flood plain, on a delta, or at the base of a mountain.
Relatively recent deposits of sedimentary material laid down in riverbeds, flood plains, and lakes or at the base of mountain slopes. (Adj. alluvial)
A general term for clay, silt, sand, gravel, or similar unconsolidated rock fragments or particles deposited during comparatively recent geologic time by a stream or other body of running water.
Unconsolidated sediment-usually sand, gravel, silt, and clay-that has been deposited by running water, such as rivers and streams. The alluvium along many Kansas rivers is a ready source of water.

n. a deposit of sand, mud, etc., formed by flowing water; alluvial - adj.
A sediment deposited by streams and varying widely in particle size. The stones and boulders when present are round or sub-rounded. Some of the most fertile soils are derived from alluvium of medium or fine texture.

A general term for unconsolidated material (e.g. clay, silt, sand, gravel) deposited from running water. Often a sorted or semi-sorted sediment in the bed of a stream or on its floodplain or delta. The deposit may be in the form of an alluvial fan.

Alluvium (from the Latin, alluvius, from alluere, "to wash against") is soil or sediments deposited by a river or other running water. Alluvium is typically made up of a variety of materials, including fine particles of silt and clay and larger particles of sand and gravel.
