Analysing The River Processes at Dovedale and Judging whether or not the aim has been clearly met

Extracts from this document...


Section 4 Conclusion Now that I have finished carrying out my investigations both on river processes at Dovedale and the tourist pressure which occurs in a honeypot in Castleton, I have now finally reached a conclusion based on my findings of each experiment. I will give an analytical overview of what I have found out and discuss whether the aims which were stated way back in section 1 were completed but more importantly a success. Analysing The River Processes at Dovedale and Judging whether or not the aim has been clearly met Aim: Look at river processes in Dovedale and how it affects the river - I will have to investigate various distinctive features of the river (8 sites) in order to complete this e.g. the wetted perimeter, the velocity, the bedload size and shape at 1m intervals, the width and depth at 1m intervals. I will then write down what I have found out and then transfer this data onto a table which looks at river processes and begin to write out the results. I will then analyse each site from 1 to 8 in as much detail as possible including doing a Spearman's rank. ...read more.


I also carried out each of the other features which I had to analyse but some of them did not go according to plan such as the bedload size and shape. On one of the radar graphs it showed that the bedload size was much bigger than what it was actually supposed to look like. This maybe because the bedload which was transported downstream did not hit as many rocks than as any other of the other rocks. Also it could have been that this anonymous result happened because the bedload was on the inside of the river stream - this is where the river velocity is at its slowest due to the larger surface area as to where the water has to travel. This means that instead of the rock being on the outside it received less erosion. Overall I think that I have shown the work which was needed to be shown in the correct places but more importantly I have analysed what my main findings of the river survey show and mean. I have also produced each and every graph and results table which I was supposed to and analyse them critically. ...read more.


For this aim once again I can say that it has been achieved as I did not find any anomalies in my results and that I produced all the surveys above. Please see the surveys as usage of evidence. Now that I have analysed each investigation and stated whether or not they have been successfully achieved, I will now produce a discussion considering what my thoughts are on the possible solutions on tourism in the Peak District National Park. This write up should be given consideration with regards to solving the problem with conflict, encouraging stewardship and encouraging sustainability. Please see the table overleaf to this page.

    Instead of trying to prevent flooding, it is simply preventing the damage that comes with it. Straightening rivers can be a huge job but a very effective way of reducing flood risk. Meanders in rivers slow down the velocity and so the speed at which the river can flow away from the settlement areas.
