Yes, that would be a good thing to put on the resource page. I also put statistics (e.g., % of freshwater/total water in lakes, rivers, groundwater, etc...)

Another thing that i liked was a chart of size correlations for particles in a river's load. One of the thoughts I entertained, but ultimately did not include was a tie breaker where the competitors would list the particle name, and its relative size limits.

Could someone tell me what I can add to my notes? I went through the rule book and feel like I covered everything in the rules and I also put some stuff about the largest lakes and rivers, but is there anything I'm missing? Maybe something u came across on a test u weren't expecting? Thanks!

Sorry for double post--but have you also included slicks/streaks for waves and what causes them?

I'm assuming the correct answer would be based on the Wentworth scale, correct?

I placed 7th at state, out of 24... most of the questions were on river topography, hydrogeology and geomorphology.
