The Exner equation describes the mass balance for sediment deposition and erosion. The original version embodies the main short-term processes of deposition and creation of the stratigraphic record is created. It can easily be modified to include additional processes like subsidence, compaction, and carbonate or evaporite formation. The Exner equation is far more important in quantitative sedimentary geology than the usual topics from fluid mechanics that are included in undergraduate sedimentary geology texts. The goal is to take the equation apart to help undergraduates develop a physical intuition for what they mean and how they can be estimated using simple measures like length and time scales. The emphasis is on building intuition rather than mathematical solution methods.
