ConcepTest: Stream Diversion Structure #1 part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:ConcepTests:Examples
The town of Pleasantville is located at a meander bend in a floodplain. In order to reduce the threat of property loss due to erosion, Pleasantville's engineer proposes the construction of the diversion ...

ConcepTest: Relationship Between Stream Discharge, Depth and Velocity part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:ConcepTests:Examples
A stream channel is widened by erosion, but stream discharge is unchanged. Which of the following statements must be true? a. depth increased and/or velocity increased b. depth decreased and/or velocity increased ...

ConcepTest: Stream Discharge Gauges #2 part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:ConcepTests:Examples
Four stream gauging station locations are shown on the adjacent map (A, B, C, D). Assume the bedrock and topography is similar for each stream system. Predict which station is most likely to record the least ...

ConcepTest: Streamflow Velocity Change After Channel is Narrowed part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:ConcepTests:Examples
A stream channel is narrowed by bridge construction. How will the velocity of flow change if the depth and discharge of the stream remain constant? a. velocity will increase b. velocity will decrease c. velocity ...

ConcepTest: Stream Discharge Gauges #1 part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:ConcepTests:Examples
Four stream gauging station locations are shown on the adjacent map (A, B, C, D). Assume the bedrock and topography is similar for each stream system. Predict which station will record the greatest discharge? a. A ...

ConcepTest: Calculating Stream Discharge part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:ConcepTests:Examples
