Abstract

After a brief description of the principal sedimentological features of gravel-bed rivers, this article reviews the mechanisms that sort bed material by size during sediment entrainment, transport and deposition and discusses some of the inter-relationships that exist between patterns and processes of sediment sorting at different spatial and temporal scales. Numerical models of sediment sorting are only briefly considered
