rain, snow, sleet, or hail that falls from clouds precipitation
the continuous movement of water from the ocean to the atmosphere, from the atmosphere to the land, and then back to the ocean the water cycle
water vapor cools and changes into water droplets, forming clouds condensation
the downward movement of water through spaces in soil due to gravity percolation
the materials carried down by a stream load
the measure of the change in elevation over a certain distance gradient
the amount of water a stream or river carries in a given amount of time discharge
what does a high gradient level give a stream more erosive energy
a quickly flowing rive with a narrow channel that tumbles over many rocks and has few tributaries a youthful river
a river tat has a wide channel and few falls and rapids and is fed by many tributaries mature river
why does a mature river have more discharge than a youthful river because of its good drainage
a river with low gradient, a wide, flat floodplain, and many bends an old river
a river that is found where the land is raised by tectonic activity rejuvenated river
the process in which material is laid down or dropped deposition
rock and soil deposited by streams sediment
the heavy minerals deposited where the river current slows down placer deposit
a fan-shaped mass of mud deposited in the mouth of a stream delta
a fan-shaped mass of material deposited by a stream when the slope of the land decreases sharply alluvial fan
