5 Matching questions

  1. floodplain deposits
  2. discharge
  3. watershed
  4. stream terraces
  5. deltas
  1. a 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
  2. b 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. c total area that drains into a particular stream
  4. d levees
  5. e form when the stream flows into larger body of calm water and sediment load is deposited

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. physical removal of particles by either abrasion, movement, or dissolution
  2. gradient, velocity, discharge
  3. larger material that moves along the bottom of the stream
  4. stream cuts deep channel as land is uplifted (i.e. stream channel is maintained as an anticline is forming resulting in the stream cutting through the structure instead of following beside it)
  5. stream will cut channel down to base level (ultimate base level is sea level); local base level could be larger than stream or lake

5 True/False questions

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


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


  3. 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


  4. alluvial fanslobe-shaped deposits similar to deltas but adjacent to highlands; typically arid to semi-arid conditions


  5. depositionphysical removal of particles by either abrasion, movement, or dissolution
