5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. deltas
  2. suspended load
  3. geomorphology
  4. discharge
  5. deposition
  1. a form when the stream flows into larger body of calm water and sediment load is deposited
  2. b base level, gullies/canyons/gorges, superposed streams, antecedent streams, steam terraces, incised meanders
  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 braided streams, meandering streams, floodplain deposits, deltas, alluvial fans
  5. e total volume of water moving past a particular point over a given period of time (to calculate, need the channel dimensions to calculate area and the stream velocity: Q (discharge)= V* A

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. 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)
  2. total area that drains into a particular stream
  3. down cutting occurs when stream has more energy than is required to carry its sediment load
  4. gradient, velocity, discharge
  5. result when stream is fully loaded with sediment

5 True/False questions

  1. velocityphysical removal of particles by either abrasion, movement, or dissolution

          

  2. incised meandersresult when stream is fully loaded with sediment

          

  3. bed loadform when the stream flows into larger body of calm water and sediment load is deposited

          

  4. dividetopographic feature separating water sheds

          

  5. meandering streamspoint bars, oxbow lakes
