Traction - Rolling stones along the river bed. (this needs the most energy)

Saltation - Sand sized particles bounce along the river bed in a "leap-frog" movement.

Suspension - Silt and clay particles are carried within the water flow.

Solution - Some minerals dissolve in the water (this needs the least energy)
