what factors influence runoff
What factors influence runoff?
  • The presence of impervious surfaces

(roads, parking lots)

2. Soil type

(hard-packed clay forms runoff)

3. Steepness of slope

(runoff is faster and more pronounced on

steep slopes)

three ways materials can be carried in rivers
Three ways materials can be carried in rivers:
  • In solution (particles are completely dissolved)
  • In suspension (particles are small enough to be swept along in the current)
  • In bed load (sand, pebbles, small rocks are dragged along the bottom of fast-moving streams)

At a river’s base level (its lowest point), it empties into another body of water.This location is called the mouth of the river.
