Following a Rock in a Stream

Run Time: 00:02:19

Standing by a mountain stream, Dr. Sherilyn Williams-Stroud, senior research scientist at Chevron-Texaco Energy Technology Company, explains how moving water can carry material from mountains to the sea. The water of a tumbling stream, over millions of years, carries rocks, sand, and silt to lower elevations, wearing down the mountain. Larger streams flow into rivers and, eventually, the sediment they bear is carried out to the sea. Featured Scientist: Sherilyn Williams Stroud, Ph.D.
