To answer this, think about the way water moves and how ice moves. Now think of steady fast-moving streams of water and massive hulking glaciers scraping across the land. Streams push sediments along and sort them into normalized groups. Sand is separated from stones of different sizes. Glacier pick up rocks in their slow progress and deposit them later as the ice melts. The streams' depositions are very regular; the glaciers' depositions are very irregular.

How do disappearing streams differ from regular surface streams?

Surface waste is really supplanted by extensive underground seepage. "vanish" (vanishing streams) and "return" (springs). Streams that stream on a superficial level and afterward apparently "vanish" subterranean. They may likewise vanish into cracks or blames in the bedrock close to the stream. A gushing stream gets water from the beginning, in this manner it extends downstream by getting further and more extensive. Influent streams are in parched territories and lose a ton of water through dissipation and drainage into the ground. ... Most influent streams lose the entirety of their water, evaporating before entering the ocean.
