  1. a levees
  2. b bed load, suspended load, dissolved load
  3. c smaller particles that move with the water- too small to settle out. Whether a particular particle is transported or not and how it is transported depends on the energy level of the stream and the size and shape of the particle
  4. d form when the stream flows into larger body of calm water and sediment load is deposited
  5. e physical removal of particles by either abrasion, movement, or dissolution
