Surface Water An Erosional-Depositional System
Running Water When running water is confined to a channel, it is called a stream Smaller streams called tributaries flow into larger ones until it forms a river system
V-Shaped Valleys The action of stream abrasion causes a v- shaped valley to be cut into the landscape
Watershed Areas The area drained by a stream is called a watershed area Another name for a watershed area is drainage basin
The high land that separates one watershed area from another is called a divide.
The source of a river is called its headwaters. This is where a river has it’s greatest potential energy The place where a river ends is called the mouth of the river. This is the base level.

The hydrologic cycle is the flow of water circulation from ocean to atmosphere to land and back to the ocean.
Water a single resource. Watershed Area that contributes water to a particular point on a stream or other surface-water feature, such as a lake Based.
