GEO 3100 Assignment 10 (Stream Processes & Floods) Richard Moore A#022910651.A) What type of stream channel develops when a stream has too much sediment load?AB) Explain how too much discharge eventually results in slower water flow.Excesses in
discharge are managed by dependent variables such as gradient and channel pattern.2.C)How does the development of meanders also cause slower water flow?A meanderingstream cuts into the its banks, thus using some of the excess energy to erode and transportsediment. Doing this lowers the streams gradient causing a slower and less energetic waterflow.3.Discuss how flash floods versus regional floods occur. Which has the most potential forloss of life?A typical flash floodresults when rain falls intensely for hours in a small area,causing runoff of a fast moving, powerful flood water that lasts only a short time.Regionalfloodsoccur when lots of rain falls over a large area for days or weeks, causing river floodrlevels to rise slowly and then to fall slowly.Flash floodsrepresent the potential for moreloss of life.
4.A) What expected flood size does FEMA use to establish its regulatoryB)In any given year
