# Concept 2 Quiz

Describe the process of streamflow and the factors influencing stream erosion, transportation, and deposition.

This activity contains 15 questions.

## We depend on running water for

 energy transportation irrigation most of our drinking supplies a, b, and c above all of the above

## The drainage basin of one stream is separated from the drainage basin of another stream by an imaginary line called a

 water gap drainage pattern overland separation divide

## The volume of water flowing past a certain point (measured in cubic feet per second) is known as

 competence turbulent discharge capacity laminar

## Most large rivers carry the largest part of their load

 in solution in suspension near their head during the dry season as bed load

## Intermittent movement of sand and gravel resembling skips and jumps is characteristic of

 suspended particles braided solution saltation alluvium

## Depositional processes dominate

 where the river enters a large body of water the transportation zone the erosion zone upstream within the trunk system

## Discharge downstream always

 is impossible to calculate increases decreases stays the same, is constant none of the above

## Along straight stretches, the highest water velocities in a river are near the ____________ of the channel, just below the surface.

 center at the surface the outer bank center just below the surface the inner bank none of the above

## Water particles roughly moving in straight line paths that parallel the channel is considered

 channel flow laminar turbulent competent erosional

## The deposition of solid particles sorted by various sizes occurs because particles are divided by

 discharge saltation critical settling velocity capacity alluvium

## Correctly match the following pictures with the proper term for the drainage pattern.
