5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. deltas
  2. velocity
  3. deposition
  4. gullies, canyons, and gorges
  5. hydrologic cycle
  1. a distance per unit time (i.e m/sec); varies greatly within and between streams
  2. b braided streams, meandering streams, floodplain deposits, deltas, alluvial fans
  3. c down cutting occurs when stream has more energy than is required to carry its sediment load
  4. d form when the stream flows into larger body of calm water and sediment load is deposited
  5. e path water takes from ocean, evaporation, precipitation, surface flow, transpiration, groundwater flow, and return to ocean

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. stream will cut channel down to base level (ultimate base level is sea level); local base level could be larger than stream or lake
  2. result when stream is fully loaded with sediment
  3. 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)
  4. bed load, suspended load, dissolved load
  5. levees
