Chapter 18 Review

  1. 1. River channels are landforms that results from river and stream erosion.<br />
  2. 2.
  3. 3. In the water cycle, the sun’s energy causes Evaporation.<br />
  4. 4. Lakes form in areas where the water table is above the Earth’s surface.<br />
  5. 5. Stream and river deposits include deltas and alluvial fans.<br />
  6. 6. During the water cycle energy is gained during evaporation.<br />Energy Gained<br />
  7. 7. Loses Energy<br />Gains energy<br />In the water cycle water gains energy during evaporation and loses energy during condensation.<br />
  8. 8. In the water cycle condensation and precipitation occur in the atmosphere and evaporation occurs on the Earth’s surface. <br />
  9. 9. In a shower, many small streams of water combine to form larger<br />streams, which eventually combine and flow down the drain. This is a simple model of the watershed.<br />
  10. 10. A natural spring occurs where the water table meets Earth’s surface.<br />
  11. 11. A rejuvenated river is formed wheretectonic activity raises the land.<br />
  12. 12.
  13. 13. Only water in lakes, rivers, and shallow ground water is available for<br />human use. Analyze Keiko’s pie chart and determine the percentage<br />of Earth’s fresh water supply that is available for human use.<br />A 12%<br />B 13%<br />C 1%<br />D 24%<br />
  14. 14. Based on Keiko’s pie chart, which of the following is NOT a valid<br />conclusion?<br />F The majority of Earth’s fresh water is not available for human use.<br />G Most useable fresh water comes from lakes and rivers.<br />H More fresh water occurs as shallow ground water than as deep ground water.<br />J Ice accounts for over three-fourths of Earth’s fresh water.<br />
  15. 15. A watershed is a region of landthat is drained by a river system.<br />
  16. 16. Which of the followingare examples of deposition:<br /><ul><li>The formation of an alluvial fan.
  17. 17. A river that overflows its banks and spills out onto a flood plain.
  18. 18. The formation of a delta.</li></li></ul><li>Energy from the sun causes the evaporation of surface water during the water cycle.<br />
  19. 19. Stalactites and stalagmites are formedby deposition.<br />
