How do streams represent the concept of dynamic equilibrium?

To determine

The way in which streams represent the concept of dynamic equilibrium.

Explanation

The variables of stream continuously adjust to variations in discharge. An increase in discharge would bring an increase in the channel depth, width, and velocity of the stream. This increases the competence and capacity of the stream, thereby consequently letting the stream to erode sediment from its bed and banks.

As the flood diminishes, discharge and velocity also will decrease, leading to deposition on the channel bottom...
