1. Grade
Elevation of bed or invert of channel.

2. Grade stabilization
Stabilization of the streambed against degradation. Usually a drop structure, or series of drop structures, is used to prevent the streambed upstream of the drop structure from degrading any further, or to restore the grade where degradation has occurred. (Often lateral erosion of the banks is controlled as well.)

3. Graded effect
This is an effect that can usually be measured on a continuous scale of intensity or severity and its magnitude related directly to dose. An effect increasing in severity with increasing dose or exposure concentration.

4. Graded stream
