Part A ­Comparison of rural and urban settings for lag times between rainfall and floodingLook at the two graphs below. Label each graph with the scenario it most likely represents. Notice that for each graph, a similar rainstorm occurs, releasing a certain amount ofwater into the environment. The horizontal (x) axis represents time. The light blue curve shows the amount of streamflow (called river discharge) in each environment.Drag the appropriate items to their respective bins.Hint 1.Permeable and impervious surfacesWhen water from a storm reaches the ground, it can flow across the surface, or if the surface is permeable, it can also seep underground. Impervious surfaces, like manytypes of rock, asphalt, and concrete, prevent water from seeping into the ground.Hint 2.The streamflow curveThe steeper streamflow chart shows that within a shorter period of time, a storm would move water directly to the nearest river or stream without seeping into the ground,increasing the streamflow of such a river in a rapid fashion. The gentle streamflow chart, on the other hand, shows a gradual movement of water into the river due toincreasing seepage.ANSWER:Help
