Comments:
This picture shows the coastal cliff at Cap Blanc Nez on the northern French coast. At the bottom of cliffs you usually find a small or larger scree slope. In this scree usually sorting occurs. The big blocks are rolling further down than the smaller ones. Scree slopes with loose material have, depending on the properties of the rock, an angle of inclination up to 37 degrees.

V-shaped river valley. The steep slopes and the fast-flowing river means rapid erosion.

Comments:
Because of the erosion in the outside bend of the river, the slope becomes affected. By slope processes rock will end up in the river stream. At high water levels the larger stones will be taken downstream by the water. They will get more rounded and smaller due to the erosion, the further they are transported downstream.

Typical badland erosion with sharp ridges and valleys. This type of erosion is mainly found in semi-desert regions with scarce vegetation.
