-down cutting erosion
Letchworth Gorge- Genesee River
-very wide channel and floodplain
Is sediment of mixed sizes sorted by streams as kinetic energy decreases and velocity slows?
1. The block diagram below shows a displacement of rock layers.Which process describes the downward sliding of the rock material?
A) tidal changes B) glacial erosion C) mass movement D) lava flow
2. Create a graph that demonstrates the relationship between the distance from a river delta into the ocean and the average size of sediments deposited on the ocean floor.
Try to describe the relationship.
Stream Deposition Occurs In Areas:
1. at widening rivers
2. on the inside of a curve of a meandering stream
3. at the mouth of stream/river that flows into a larger body of water
As kinetic energy ______________, water velocity _____________.
McDougal Sorting Animation
-frozen ground does not allow for snow melt or rain water to penetrate soil which leads to increased runoff into streams/rivers

How do size, shape and density affect settling (deposition) rates of sediment?
