Explain three factors that affect the rate of stream erosion?
whats the anwer?
its a waterstream
There are three factors that affect stream erosion. These are water velocity, shape, size and depth of channel, and stream capacity to transport eroded materials.
it is gradient, discharge and load.
Stream Load is the amount of material a stream can hold as it flows. As a stream flows it causes erosion, and this erosion is carried about as material in the stream. As too much is eroded, the extra material will fall to the bottom, or push it's way to the sides.
It is because if a stream gets bigger, it is allowed to carry more sediment. More sediment means more erosion.

Headward erosion is a fluvial process of erosion that lengthens a stream, a valley or a gully at its head and also enlarges its drainage basin. The stream erodes away at the rock and soil at its headwaters in the opposite direction that it flows. Once a stream has begun to cut back, the erosion is sped up by the steep gradient the water is flowing down. As water erodes a path from its headwaters… Read More

what weathering does is that weathering moves your soil or sediments and then when it hits a stream erosion happens and moves it down along the stream and then comes deposition and the sediment lands at a random spot.
Yes, erosion is caused by the factors such as wind action, river and stream processes, marine processes (sea waves), and glacial processes, which is all due to gravity.
Erosion and turbulence. Turbulence can include out-flow from desalinization plants if poorly designed. Erosion prevention and turbulence mitigation are important subjects for anyone doing building to understand, even on an individual property, and near a lake, stream, river, reservoir or pond.
Sunlight helps plants grow in the stream, and the temperature can freeze some organisms and kill it.
It is direct, and the amount of stream erosion increases, kinetic energy increases also.
Stream Bank erosion is the wearing away of the banks of a stream or river. This is distinguished from erosion of the bed of the watercourse, which is referred to as scour. The roots of trees growing by a stream are undercut by such erosion. As the roots bind the soil tightly, they form abutments which jut out over the water. These have a significant effect upon the rate and progress of the erosion.
Stream erosions are things that can relate to normal erosions
Little sediments are carried by the eroding stream
no, suspended load is responsible for the most stream erosion 10. Question: Which load is responsible for the most stream erosion? Your Answer: Bed load CORRECT ANSWER Suspended load INCORRECT Dissolved load
The storm surge and waves of a hurricane can severely erode beaches. Inland flooding from hurricane rain can cause severe erosion as well, especially in and near stream channels.
Stream channels experience erosion from gradients (velocity of water), soft materials, and at the outside of bends.
A stream, which flows in a channel, is formed as a result of erosion as the channel itself must be formed from erosion. Deposition is not common here, but there is a lot of loose material in the stream which is eroded over time, which has been put there through erosion. The material is first eroded further, then transported, and will ultimately be deposited at the mouth.

stream piracy and/or stream capture
rate of stream discharge is directly proportional to the erosion i.e the higher the velocity of the stream then it will erode the rock rapidly while the deposition process will be slow when the velocity will be high.
Along with friction, turbulence slows the stream's flow and may also erode the stream.
three i only no 2 sorry well if really must know and ur commin to me for advice i guess ill tell you: gradient & discharge. thems is wats it be you r entirely welcome come again any time,any time....:-> The 3rd factor that affects erosion in streams is the load. (bed, suspended, and dissolved).
A mature stream causes more erosion than a young stream, due to the pure fact that theres more curve in a mature stream causing the sediments to shift more frequently.
lateral erosion is the action of making a stream wider. The hydraulic action of the current hits one side of the bank with enough energy so that the material of the eroded bank falls into the stream and disintegrates. At the same time, the stream moves outwards towards towards the direction of erosion.
At the outside of a bend
usually by a river or stream, erosion.....
The amount of and the speed of the water
the deepening of a stream bed by pebbles rolling along the bottom of the stream
The hydrosphere refers to all bodies of water on the Earth's surface. Bush fires affect stream and river water quality. An erosion, which results from a bush fire can increase the turbidity of the water, which will negatively affect aquatic life.
Along with friction, turbulence slows down the waters flow and also may erode the stream bed
as slope increases erosion rate increases (direct relationship)
deposition, erosion and weathering
i think its the farts in this world
Thats what i wanted to know
The ocean currents affect the climate. (Labrador Current and Gulf Stream) nononono your wrong i live theiir so hohohoho fat
mass wasting on the valley sides
describe the relationship between stream velocity,erosion,transport and deposition
A stream will be tend to be eroded most where the water current is the swiftest and the surrounding ground the softest. Materials carried by the water will also affect erosion. Such materials include ice, sand, and pebbles The current is swifter on the outside of a river bend. On the inside of a river bend the current may slow and erosion materials may be left in the river bed.
To build a retaining wall to stop erosion along a stream, you could begin by placing blocks of concrete or bricks along the base of the stream and up the bank on the side with the most erosion. Use large stones if concrete is not practical for the area. This will stop the water from removing soft sand.
Topography of the land. Development and run off/ watershed areas. Soils. Stream channels. Etc
River valleys are formed by stream erosion.
A hypothesis is any idea used to explain and test a scientific idea, while a theory is a hypothesis that has become scientifically accepted. For example, say I hypothesize that rocks in a stream are worn smooth by erosion. This is a hypothesis of sorts. I test this hypothesis by putting rocks in a room and in a stream, and conclude that the stream rocks have been worn smooth. If I complete multiple tests and… Read More
