The paper is a kind of a small guide book through the textures and structures of river deposits in valleys. It presents principles of the flument systems with morphological river terraces and fluments (terrace bodies), different stages of the morphological terraces, structure of the flument, texture of terrace flights, terrace stacks and terrace rows. Special topics deal with flument overlaps and insight into the valley ground.
