  3. transport of sediment
  4. incised meanders
  5. deltas
  1. a distance per unit time (i.e m/sec); varies greatly within and between streams
  2. b form when the stream flows into larger body of calm water and sediment load is deposited
  3. c previously established meanders in area that is being uplifted-
    form from deep downcutting of meandering stream through hard bedrock. Shape of meanders is
