At such a rate, the Sun would shrink down to nothing in only 200,000 years, so this shrinking obviously could not be going on steadily for several billion years. Once the nutrient rich sediment flows downstream, however, it will help restore the estuary, salmon habitats, and beaches. Mountain Research and Development 22(3):278-287 Naveh, Z., A.

The diagram below is a map showing the stream drainage pattern for an area of the Earth's crust. Water can even dissolve the solid rocks from which our planet is made, though the process does take many years, decades, or even centuries. Polystrate Fossils [DB 1516 (87); OAB 71] Most so-called "polystrate fossils" are tree trunks that were buried as they grew by several layers of mud in relatively quick succession.
