By the end of today's class, you should be able to do the following:


*  Complete a topographic maps worksheet using several different maps to perform tasks such as these: identify features, use the key, measure distances, and use coordinate systems.

* Use the stream table to examine the processes of erosion, transportation, and deposition of sediment. 

* Describe some of the ways in which various watersheds might differ from each other (e.g. size of drainage area, degree of urbanization, and so on).

* Graph the stream data you collected in preparation for an exercise next time: graph discharge vs. time, showing the 10 days before the peak flow, the day of the peak flow, and the 10 days following the peak flow.

* Compile the graphed data from your own research and from that of other students in preparation for Homework Assignment #5, due one week from today, on Thursday, December 7.
