It was stated that the discharge of a stream increases downstream. Since Q = WDV, would the velocity increase downstream as well?
Answer to relevant QuestionsIf the velocity does not increase downstream, as stated in the previous question, what will have to change to accommodate the greater volume of water (i.e., discharge)?How large is the drainage basin of the Mississippi River?Do rivers erode laterally as well as downward?How does snow turn to ice?What relationships between accumulation and ablation, as in Fig. 10.1, will cause a glacier to advance or retreat?
