divide operated one watershed from another
bed load rolling and sliding in order to transport

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
