streams diverge from a central area in all directions.D. Trellis:alternating rock types control drainage geometry. tributaries are nearly parallel toeach other in areas of alternating linear belts of resistant and less resistant rocks.17) A city located on a large river has a history of moderate flooding over its 150-yearhistory. However, the severity and magnitude of flooding has increased dramatically in thepast 30 years. Give some possible reasons, both natural and human-induced, as to why suchincreased flooding might occur. What flood control techniques may be used to reduce flooddamage, and how may they contribute to other problems?
oThe nature of the drainage basin has an influence on the likelihood offlooding.oUrbanizationodeforestation-Management of flooding:obuilding embankments along river channelsoThe river channel may be widened or deepened allowing it to carry morewater. A river channel may be straightened so that water can travel fasteralong the course. The channel course of the river can also be altered,diverting floodwaters away from settlements.oplanting trees near the riveroLocal authorities and the national government introduce policies to controlurban development close to or on the floodplain.
