User: The triangular-shaped body of water that forms where a streams enters a larger body of water is a/an Weegy: The triangular-shaped body of water that forms where a streams enters a larger body of water is a: delta [ ] User: what is the water table Weegy: The water table is the surface where the water pressure head is equal to the atmospheric pressure (where gauge pressure = 0). [ It may be conveniently visualized as the "surface" of the subsurface materials that are saturated with groundwater in a given vicinity. However, saturated conditions may extend above the water table as surface tension holds water in some pores below atmospheric pressure.[1] Individual points on the water table are typically measured as the elevation that the water rises to in a well screened in the shallow groundwater. The groundwater may be from infiltrating precipitation or from groundwater flowing into the aquifer. In areas with sufficient precipitation, water infiltrates through pore spaces in the soil, passing through the unsaturated zone. At increasing depths water fills in more of the pore spaces in the soils, until the zone of saturation is reached. In permeable or porous materials, such as sands and well fractured bedrock, ...
