Which graph best represents the relationship between the discharge of a stream and the velocity of stream flow? 1. 2. 3. 4. 1
As the velocity of a stream transporting pebbles, sand, silt, and clay decreases from 30 cm/s to 0.1 cm/sec, some sediment deposition will occur. Which choice below best describes the sediments that will be deposited as a result of the decrease in stream velocity? 1. pebbles, sand and some silt 2. clay and some silt 3. pebble, sand, silt, and most of the clay 4. only some sand and clay 1
Which agent of erosion most likely produced this valley’s shape? 1. wave action 2. moving ice 3. blowing wind 4. flowing water 2
Transported sediments are usually deposited at locations in which 1. the freeing and thawing of water occurs 2. the chemical breakdown of rocks occurs 3. a decrease in the speed of the agent of erosion occurs 4. an increase in the physical weathering of rocks occurs 3
In a soil sample, the particles have the same shape but different sizes. Which graph below best represents the relationship between particle size and settling time when these particles are deposited in a quiet body of water? 1. 2. 3. 4. 4
Which statement best describes sediments deposited by glaciers and rivers? 1. Glacial deposits and river deposits are both sorted. 2. Glacial deposits are sorted, and river deposits are unsorted. 3. Glacial deposits are unsorted, and river deposits are sorted. 4. Glacial deposits and river deposits are both unsorted. 3
