5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. deposition
  2. stream terraces
  3. hydrologic cycle
  4. divide
  5. alluvial fans
  1. a topographic feature separating water sheds
  2. b remnants of floodplains from when stream was flowing at a higher level; flat surfaces above current stream valley / formed by slow uplift of land surface over which meandering streams with floodplains are flowin
  3. c lobe-shaped deposits similar to deltas but adjacent to highlands; typically arid to semi-arid conditions
  4. d path water takes from ocean, evaporation, precipitation, surface flow, transpiration, groundwater flow, and return to ocean
  5. e braided streams, meandering streams, floodplain deposits, deltas, alluvial fans

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. levees
  4. point bars, oxbow lakes
  5. total area that drains into a particular stream

5 True/False questions

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

          

  2. dissolved 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

          

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

          

  4. streams - sources?remnants of floodplains from when stream was flowing at a higher level; flat surfaces above current stream valley / formed by slow uplift of land surface over which meandering streams with floodplains are flowin

          

  5. flow characteristicsgradient, velocity, discharge
