Transportation – The movement of material by suspension, solution, traction and saltation

The movement of material by suspension, solution, traction and saltation

Types of transportation: 

Suspension: Fine, light material is carried along by the river.

Solution: Minerals are dissolved in the water.

Traction: Large boulders and rocks are rolled along the river bed.

Saltation: Small pebbles and stones are bounced along the river bed.

To remember that transportation moves in four ways – suspension, solution, traction and saltation – recall the following:

Transport (transportation) was the solution (solution) to moving the large suspenders (suspension) so a tractor (traction) was used, but they had to salt (saltation) the roads first.
