Description

.Please help me answer all the questions below and due at today 11:59 central time

1.Sketch and explain the variables plotted on a hydrograph and what this type of graph indicates. Remember to explain how discharge is calculated.

2.Explain how the shape and slope of a drainage basin affect discharge.

3.Sketch and explain how the distribution or tributaries influences a stream’s response to precipitation.

4. Sketch the three kinds of drainage patterns, and discuss what controls each type.

5.Explain how gradient and other parameters (there are 5 of them)change downstream and how the stream’s energy velocity relates to the maximum size of sediment that can be transported and how the methods that are used to transport different clast sizes or deposit sediment change with stream energy/velocity.

6.Sketch and describe the difference between braided and high sinuosity (meandering) streams.
