5 Matching questions

  1. floodplain deposits
  2. watershed
  3. deltas
  4. incised meanders
  5. bed load
  1. a form when the stream flows into larger body of calm water and sediment load is deposited
  2. b total area that drains into a particular stream
  3. c larger material that moves along the bottom of the stream
  4. d levees
  5. e previously established meanders in area that is being uplifted-
    form from deep downcutting of meandering stream through hard bedrock. Shape of meanders is
    preserved in river canyon shape

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. ...
  2. result when stream is fully loaded with sediment
  3. physical removal of particles by either abrasion, movement, or dissolution
  4. down cutting occurs when stream has more energy than is required to carry its sediment load
  5. bed load, suspended load, dissolved load

5 True/False questions

  1. base levellarger material that moves along the bottom of the stream


  2. dividetopographic feature separating water sheds


  3. suspended loadsmaller 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. gradientslope over which the stream flows (i.e. if the headwaters are at 1000 meters and the stream flows 500 km to the sea, the gradient is 1000m/500km= 2m/km)


  5. superposed streamsi.e. Delaware river water gap; stream cuts into pre-existing geologic structures such as anticlines
