Rejuvenation of rivers
Rejuvenate means to become young again.
A rejuvenated river is a river that has become young again by increasing it’s ability to erode.
Reasons for river rejuvenation:
- A fall in the sea level, giving the river more energy
- An increase in the height of the land, causing the river to get more energy
Resultant features, such as knick point, terraces and incised meanders
