Sediment Distribution of the River Boundary Layer

The movement of particles on the river boundary layer is a complexphenomena which can be never solved by a deterministic approach. Theunsteady non uniform conditions in flow boundary layer show the result ofwater surface and bed stream changing with time and location of particles.To determine the movement of boundary layer particles other new theoriesabout stochastic processes using the theory of probability and statistics inriver alluvial channels will give better results.
