What features do you think the blue long thin lines are?
Lines indicate points of equal elevations. Choose any line above the smallest elevation. If a ball, for example, were put on this line of equal elevation, then it would roll in a direction exactly perpendicular to it. This would happen for any line of equal elevation. Each line is separated by 100. So, the closer the lines are to each other, the faster the descent of this ball, indicating locations where the gradient is larger. So, if you were to draw small lines perpendicular to all these equal elevations and traced a line from the highest point to the lowest, our ball would be forced to follow these gradients. The ball would "seek" those elevations that induce the smallest gradient, leading it into either a local valley or globally, the smallest elevation. If our ball were a drop of water, it would collect into this same area. If there were lots of water, it would form a lake. If our lowest point had a gradient of its own, it would be a river, with water flowing perpendicular to its points of equal elevation. It appears that our lowest point here has a gradient and water would flow generally to the southeast.
hope this help
Yep it does help a lot. Thanks for putting it.
Water is not exactly a feature. What exactly is something that contains river in a thin line?
Is the map in feet or meters?
I do not know. Your instruction should.
What can be key sentence out of the statement @kiamousekia wrote
Just letting you know, she posted the guideline of reading a contour map, but not the main point of this particular question. But good luck!
What should I write, about the question I asked.
Describe the features shown in the topographic map. Be specific about directions and elevations. Explain how you know what each feature is.
First answer my question that I do not know. Is the map in meters or feet. The assignment should tel you.
The picture is all they gave me, I guessing feet idk
Ok, I can still figure this out. You were right that the blue thin long lines have water. What would you call a water in long and thin lines?
Hint: the name of this feature flows.
.... I am out then.
the blue line looks like a river that flows southeast (due to gravity, since the southeastern part is lower in elevation than the northwestern part). I'm guessing the river is in a valley surrounded by two mountains/hills on each side, again, using the elevation as a guide
Thank you so so so much
That is a nice explanation, but not very descriptive as they want it to be. You can figure it out. Good luck!
