5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. streams - sources?
  2. deltas
  3. suspended load
  4. antecedent streams
  5. bed load
  1. a form when the stream flows into larger body of calm water and sediment load is deposited
  2. b 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)
  3. c direct rain, surface run-off, soil moisture, and groundwater
  4. d larger material that moves along the bottom of the stream
  5. e 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

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. levees
  2. base level, gullies/canyons/gorges, superposed streams, antecedent streams, steam terraces, incised meanders
  3. topographic feature separating water sheds
  4. braided streams, meandering streams, floodplain deposits, deltas, alluvial fans
  5. total area that drains into a particular stream

5 True/False questions

  1. dischargetotal 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


  2. gullies, canyons, and gorgesdirect rain, surface run-off, soil moisture, and groundwater


  3. transport of sedimentbed load, suspended load, dissolved load


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


  5. meandering streamspoint bars, oxbow lakes
