Rivers and Flooding Kyanna Gilks Marianne Hartnett Xinwei Zhao Yik Wang Lai Yujian Han Purpose To acquire and recognize concepts surrounding rivers and abundanceing. Learning Outcomes 1. Relate Keller’s Fundamental Concepts to Rivers and Flooding. 2. What is a bulky drift and what processes occur during basic transportation? 3. What are leading and resultant commoditiess of flooding? 4. How does bulky drift free pretend flooding? 5. What is the role of Government? What is a River? River: A bulky drift is a bulky, probable drift of copious water. Rivers are rest on whole continent and on approximately whole skin of plant. What is Flooding? Flood: Is a probable fact or occurrence whither a ingredient of plant (or area) that is usually dry plant, suddenly gets occult under water. Some abundances can occur suddenly and ebb straightly. River Systems ● In a bulky drift classification thither are four main allots; they are: ● Channels ● Meanders ● Levees ● Abundance Plains ● A medium is a wide strict or soakway b etween two plantmasses that lie arrest to each other. It can be the deepest allot of a waterway, or a narrow association of soak that connects two bulkyr bodies of soak. ● Levees are a outcome of an overbanked streams of rivers; civilized constructed levees aid protect plant neighboring to the bulky drift from abundanceing. ● Meanders are a series of curves, bends, loops, turns, or windings in the medium of a bulky drift, stream, or other watercourse. ● Abundance Plains are a flat suraspect that is neighboring to a bulky drift or drift that experiences occasional abundanceing. What Does a River Carry? ● A bulky drift streams downhill and it is bringing the lees delay it which is denominated the aggregate commit. ● The aggregate commit includes: the bed commit, the projecting commit, and the dissolved commit. ● Bed commit moves by bouncing, rolling, or skipping alloticles along the groundwork of a bulky drift channel. It is made up of sand and gravel and is accounting hither than for 10% of the aggregate commit. What Does a Bulky drift Carry? ● Projecting commit is composed of verify and dust. It is carried balance the driftbed by copious soak. The projecting commit accounts for 90% of the aggregate commit and it is what constructs a bulky drift contemplate swampy. ● Dissolved commit is carried chemical discerption and comes from chemical weathering of minerals in hurls, lees, and befoul in the drainage basin. The dissolved commit may construct the soak look like it effectiveness elegancy salty if thither are bulky aggregates of sodium chloride; or it could be “hard” soak if dissolved commit contains elevated aggregates of calcium and magnesium. River Processes Rivers are the basic walk for orderes such as erosion and token of leess Erosion: wearing far the befoul and hurls, this puts a lot of lees into the bulky drift Deposition: is the lees delighted by the bulky drift Erosion and the token of leess can be correlated to: ○ ○ ○ ○ Change in medium width, profundity, or spring of a bulky drift What the bed of a bulky drift is composed of (rock,gravel,sand,silt, or dust) Type and aggregate of vegetation Land use,such as cleansing a plant for forest The Nature of Erosion and Lees Deposition on Rivers ● ● ● ● The fleetness of the soak in a bulky drift has divergent speeds at divergent spots, this pretends erosion and token of sediments. Rivers that stream steadfaster erode it’s bank past than lateer moving bulky drifts. Streams that stream from mountains into plains are recognizen as alluvial fans Rivers that stream into the deep or some other association of still soak may ease leess that conceive a delta ● Rain ● Bulky drift balanceflow ● Hurricanes, Strong winds in coastal areas ● Dam breaking Why Do Rivers Flood? ● Ice and snow-melts (snowmelt abundance) ● Replenish premisewater ● Improves fertility ● Wetlands ● Renew fish stock Are Floods Always Negative? What is Bulky drift Discharge? ● Discharge is the capacity of soak that passes through a affordn cross minority per item opportunity, usually valued in hard feet per second (cfs) or hard meters per second (cms). ● It (besides denominated stream) is the fastidious value of the bulky drift. However, it is up-hill to value free, so the most common way streams are reputed in the instrument is by limit. In the circumstance of a abundance, intelligence reports conciliate frequently say that a bulky drift is "5 feet balance abundance limit". Floods and bulky drifts besides entertain a crown which is frequently reputed in connection to abundance limit as in "the bulky drift conciliate crown at 7 feet balance abundance limit tomorrow." What is Bulky drift Discharge? Here is a video The Leading Commodities of Flooding Hazards associated delay abundanceing can be disjoined into leading ventures. Throughout the decisive generation abundanceing has been one of the most costly disasters in stipulations of twain nature injury and civilized casualties. Major floods in China, for stance, killed environing 2 pet inhabitants in 1887, approximately 4 pet in 1931, and environing 1 pet in 1938 The 1993 abundance on the upper Mississippi Bulky drift and Midwest killed simply 47 inhabitants, but the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers estimates the aggregate economic waste at among 15 and 20 billion dollars. The Leading Commodities of Flooding ● ● ● ● Massive aggregates of erosion can be haughty by abundance soaks Water entering civilized built structures producer soak injury. Flooding of farmplant usually outcomes in outgrowth waste. Humans that get caught in the elevated fleetness abundance soaks are frequently drowned by the soak. ● Floodwaters can localize offal, ingredients of metal,wood, and toxic pollutants that can producer the outcomeant commoditiess of health ventures. The Leading Commodities of Flooding Here is the other video How Flooding Can be a Secondary, Geological venture? Most ventureous order are besides Geologic Processes. What is outcomeant venture? Secondary Nature occur simply beproducer a leading commodities has producerd them. For stance, feelings ignited as a outcome of worldquakes, disruption of electrical power and soak service as a outcome of an earthquake, abundance, or hurricane, or abundanceing caused by a plantslide into a lake or bulky drift. Secondary Commodities of Flooding • Short-term pollution • Hunger • Disease • Fire ● The Emergency Management Office (EMO) ● Federal Role – Government Operations Centre (GOC) The Role of Government and Uncertain Bylaws, Regulations and Legislation ● Disaster Financial Assistance Arrangements (DFAA) ● 1950 in Southern Manitoba – multifarious valley towns and environing one sixth of Winnipeg were abundanceed. It was environing 51 days that the red bulky drift stayed balance the abundance limit. ● 1996 in Quebec – this disaster hit astern a massive raingravitate and caused balance 1.5 billion dollars in injury Some of The Major Floods in Canada ● 1997 Red Bulky drift abundance in Manitoba- this is recognizen as the abundance of the generation. The area was hit by a blizzard and soak levels rose 12 meters balance winter levels and it producerd the region to allege a particularize ...
