    Ox-bow Lake formation Ox-bow Lake formation Presentation Transcript

    • Ox Bow lake Formation Objective: To know how ox-bow lakes form and that they are found in the lower course of a river. Key words: Meander Ox-bow lake Deposition Erosion
    • Meander = a bend in a river
    • Oxbow Lakes
    • Oxbow Lakes Meander neck becomes smaller new course of the river oxbow lake When the river floods it breaks through the thin meander neck and the river takes the easier, straight course. This leaves the meander loop ‘cut off’ as an oxbow lake. Over time, the oxbow lake will become colonised by vegetation.
