5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. hydrologic cycle
  2. braided streams
  3. geomorphology
  4. divide
  5. meandering streams
  1. a topographic feature separating water sheds
  2. b base level, gullies/canyons/gorges, superposed streams, antecedent streams, steam terraces, incised meanders
  3. c point bars, oxbow lakes
  4. d path water takes from ocean, evaporation, precipitation, surface flow, transpiration, groundwater flow, and return to ocean
  5. e result when stream is fully loaded with sediment

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. i.e. Delaware river water gap; stream cuts into pre-existing geologic structures such as anticlines
  2. 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
  3. distance per unit time (i.e m/sec); varies greatly within and between streams
  4. total area that drains into a particular stream
  5. bed load, suspended load, dissolved load

5 True/False questions

  1. 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

          

  2. flow characteristicsgradient, velocity, discharge

          

  3. streams - sources?direct rain, surface run-off, soil moisture, and groundwater

          

  4. gradientphysical removal of particles by either abrasion, movement, or dissolution

          

  5. gullies, canyons, and gorgesi.e. Delaware river water gap; stream cuts into pre-existing geologic structures such as anticlines
