What impact would a fall in sea level have on the lower course of a stream that reaches the sea? What impact would a rise in sea level have on it?

Explanation

As the sea level drops, the base level of the stream would also decine, bringing an increase in the stream gradient. Increased gradient increases the energy and velocity of the stream which, in turn, positively affects the capacity and competence of the stream.

With increased competence and capacity, the stream would be able to carry a lot of sediments from its bed...
