Surface Water

watershed holds water; area of land that contains a common set of streams and rivers that all drain into a single larger body of water
divide operated one watershed from another
bed load rolling and sliding in order to transport
suspended load sediments suspended in order to transport; most common
dissolved laod sediments dissolved and transported
Nile world's largest river in terms of disharge
formula for disharge width x depth x velocity
dendritic branching streams
trellis paralled
rectangular rectangular
radial diverge from center area
centripetal towards the center of basin`
capacity the amount of sediments a rive can carry; depends on discharge
competence the size of sediment; depends of velocity
calculate graadient vertical drop/ distance
erosion happens outside of a meander; cut bank
deposition happens inside o meander; point bar
alluvial fan low gradient distribution channel; decrease velocity; deposits into sediments
delta a deposit of clay, silt, and sand formed at the mouth of a river where the stream loses velocity and drops part of its sediment load into a continues flow of water
gradient decreases
velocity increases
channel roughness decreases
discharge increases
width and depth increases
