describe the formation of an oxbow lake?
An oxbow lake is a U-shaped body of water formed when a wide meander from the mainstem of a river is cut off to create a lake. This landform is called an oxbow lake for the distinctive curved shape that results from this process. [ In Australia, an oxbow lake is called a billabong. By itself, the word oxbow can also mean a U-shaped bend in a river or stream, whether or not it is cut off from the
mainstream. ]

compare the rate of water flow on the inside of a meander curve with that on the outside of the curve?
Weegy: At any point where astream is following a curved path, the water on the inside of the bend is moving slower than the water on the outside, [ so deposition of features called "point bars" is occurring on the inside of the curve at the same time that the water on the outside of the curve is eroding the bank. Thus through time, the curve becomes increasingly sharp, giving rise to the typical "snakey" shape of a meandering stream. ] User: describe four changes that a stream undergoes as it works its way towards the ocean?

describe the process that couses a water droplet to fall to earth as precipitation?
Weegy: Well the main culprit is the sun! The sun's energy evaporates liquid water, and changes its phase to water vapor. [ The vapor rises into the atmosphere, and becomes clouds, where the clouds condense and changes the vapor back into liquid, and whalla: rain drops falling on your head. That is the extreme simple explanation. Hope it helps ] User: what determines whather precipitation will fall as rain or snow? (More)

describe four changes that a stream undergoes as it works its way towards the ocean?
Weegy: Kinds of streams are: River, A large natural stream, which may be a waterway; Creek, In North America and Australia, a small to medium sized natural stream. [ Sometimes navigable by motor craft and may be intermittent, In parts of New England, the UK and India, a tidal inlet, typically in a salt marsh or mangrove swamp, or between enclosed and drained former salt marshes or swamps (e.g. Port Creek separating Portsea Island from the mainland). In these cases, the stream is the tidal stream, the course of the seawater through the creek channel at low and high tide. Tributary, A contributory stream, or a stream which does not reach the sea but joins another river (a parent river). Sometimes also called a branch or fork. and Brook, A stream smaller than a creek, especially one that is fed by a spring or seep. It is usually small and easily forded. A brook is characterized by its shallowness and its bed being composed primarily of rocks. Does this help you? ] User: what are the differances between an alluvial fan and a delta? (More)
