Fluvial vs. Alluvial[edit]

I think that the definition an explanation of these two terms needs to differ, either by saying 1)fluvial is from perenial rivers, alluvial is not (or at least, not controlled by river sedimentary processes 100% of the time) or 2) fluvial as a subset of alluvial sediments, alluvial being any unconsolidated sediments, fluvial being only from rivers. It is my opinion that the alluvial definition is the one that needs to change.--Qfl247 (talk) 18:26, 22 October 2009 (UTC)


I'm fairly sure the formal definition of weathering specifically excludes the action of moving water/ice, so I don't think we should be describing the hydraulic action of water as a 'weathering effect'. I've changed this.

In general, I'm feeling that this page needs a bit of a redraft. I'l have a go if I get time in the near future, unless anyone strongly objects? DanHobley (talk) 18:26, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

Title and content[edit]

The current title, fluvial, is inconsistent with WP:NOUN, and the content seems to barely reach beyond the contraindications of WP:DICTIONARY. I suggest the material would be better located at something like fluviation or fluvial geography. ENeville (talk) 16:13, 16 November 2014 (UTC)
