5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. floodplain deposits
  2. base level
  3. dissolved load
  4. deposition
  5. gradient
  1. a braided streams, meandering streams, floodplain deposits, deltas, alluvial fans
  2. b stream will cut channel down to base level (ultimate base level is sea level); local base level could be larger than stream or lake
  3. c ...
  4. d levees
  5. e slope 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 Multiple choice questions

  1. i.e. Delaware river water gap; stream cuts into pre-existing geologic structures such as anticlines
  2. total area that drains into a particular stream
  3. base level, gullies/canyons/gorges, superposed streams, antecedent streams, steam terraces, incised meanders
  4. larger material that moves along the bottom of the stream
  5. 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

5 True/False questions

  1. alluvial fansform when the stream flows into larger body of calm water and sediment load is deposited


  2. incised meandersresult when stream is fully loaded with sediment


  3. stream terracesdirect rain, surface run-off, soil moisture, and groundwater


  4. braided streamsresult when stream is fully loaded with sediment


  5. meandering streamspoint bars, oxbow lakes
