I'm turning this page into a detailed discussion of sediment transport instead of just making it a redirect to "sediment". That way, "sediment" won't have to go too deep/too far out of its basic scope, and can link to this for a more detailed description of sediment transport. I'll be editing this off and on.

I'm proposing the below to-do list for this article. It's pretty extensive, but I wanted to write down a template of goals I invite other editors to modify it, add to it, and check things off as they are completed.
I'm proposing this because the article currently focuses a ton on bedload transport in rivers, which is where my knowledge lies. Awickert (talk) 06:01, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
Relation to river channel evolution
Detachment by abrasion and plucking
Braided streams - rapid erosion and deposition
Meandering streams - point bars and cut banks
Relation to other issues
Floodplain and sedimentary basin evolution
Movement of particles within the ice mass
Bedforms (ripples, dunes, etc.)
Erosion by wind
Diffusional hillslope profile
Relationship between landscape evolution and uplift (due to increase in slope)
Changes in particles as they are transported (rounding, higher % quartz)
You are missing any reference to colloidal material. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 10:53, 18 June 2009 (UTC)
As a beginner I found the "Setup" and "solution" sections confused. There appears to be some duplication of equations between sections.--22.214.171.124 (talk) 18:08, 10 April 2012 (UTC)
