The average annual precipitation worldwide must equal the quantity of water
The energy for the water cycle comes from where

Source of energy is the sun.

What is a base level what is a base level

base level-The lowest level to which a stream can flow. :)

What happens to the volume of the water when it freezes

The waters volume increases by aprox 9%

By what process do streams and rivers move material

Weathering <Lies

Erosion!(:

Artificial levees and dams are structures used to control what

Flooding

What are the three main types of glacial erosion

The 3 main types of glacial erosion are plucking, abrasion and freeze thaw.

Why are limiting development on floodplains effective

Limiting development on floodplains is effective in controlling floods because this allows floodplains to absorb floodwaters without harm to structures

What are rock features such as the sculpted pinnacles seen in Bryce Canyon National Park he result of

differential weathering

What happens after a streams discharge increases

After a stream's discharge increases, more water flows and the stream's velocity increases. Generally the width and depth will also increase.

Which factor does not influence stream velocity

channel size<lies

Pedalfer soils would most likely be found

In the eastern half of the united states.

What are long sand ridges oriented nearly parallel to the prevailing wind called

longitudinal dunes

What statement is not true about mass movement

Which of the following is not true about mass movement

A relatively rapid form of mass movement that is most common in dry mountainous regions is

a mudflow

A stream valley landform is the most common result of what

mass movement

In soils with distinct soil horizones the bottom zone is the

In soils with distinct soil horizons, the bottom zone is the bedrock denoted as R.

In a typical stream where the gradient is steep the discharge is

In a typical stream where the gradient is steep the discharge is small.

In the desert environment the chemical weathering of rocks is generally reduced because

moisture is lacking and organic acids are scarce ;D

Organic matter in soil is also called .

The formation of complex organic matter in soil is called Humus
