5 Matching questions

  1. divide
  2. floodplain deposits
  3. flow characteristics
  4. streams - sources?
  5. braided streams
  1. a direct rain, surface run-off, soil moisture, and groundwater
  2. b topographic feature separating water sheds
  3. c result when stream is fully loaded with sediment
  4. d levees
  5. e gradient, velocity, discharge

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. i.e. Delaware river water gap; stream cuts into pre-existing geologic structures such as anticlines
  2. 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
  3. braided streams, meandering streams, floodplain deposits, deltas, alluvial fans
  4. path water takes from ocean, evaporation, precipitation, surface flow, transpiration, groundwater flow, and return to ocean
  5. form when the stream flows into larger body of calm water and sediment load is deposited

5 True/False questions

  1. alluvial fansform when the stream flows into larger body of calm water and sediment load is deposited

          

  2. antecedent streamspoint bars, oxbow lakes

          

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

          

  4. velocitydistance per unit time (i.e m/sec); varies greatly within and between streams

          

  5. dischargetopographic feature separating water sheds
