Meandering River Diagram

Use the diagram of the meandering river to fill-in-the-blanks.
Meandering River
C is called a                     .
A is a                         .
Erosion is greatest at point            on the diagram.
The velocity of the water at B is                    than the velocity of the water at C.
If a meander in the river is cutoff, it may form a(n)                    lake.
Given points B and C, the meander will migrate toward point            over time.
The river carries sediment                    in size at point D than point A because its velocity is                    here.
Of the four points shown on the diagram, deposition is greatest at points            and           .
As rock particles are transported down river, their shape tends to become more                     .
If a soil boring was done near point A, generally, coarser sediment would be found at the                    of the core and finer sediment, like sand, would be found at the                    of the core.
The velocity of the river water would                        if the river emptied into a delta located after point D.
The sediment that is transported along the bottom of the river is called the                  load.
