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.

    loads to its surrounding areas leaving a fresh new covering of alluvium. Levees will from immediate around the river as the coarser more heavy material gets deposited out of the river. If sea level falls then the river will cut into its own bed.

  2. Does the river Alyn follow Bradshaw's model?

    This may have only been true for the part of the river I tested because it was quite wide but very shallow which meant that any changes in depth produced quite a large change in the cross sectional area which we have already discovered has a large influence on discharge and velocity.

    My results may not be as accurate as they could be because the heavy rainfall may have speeded up the river's flow rate and possibly pushed the cork down through gravity. Also, the cork got caught up in the vegetation which may add to the time taken.

  2. How does Loughton Brook change as it moves downstream?

    This will gather evidence for the first key question. � The technique used to measure the velocity was used because it gave us its rough velocity. We used the lightest material possible as a boat. This will gather evidence for the first key question.

  1. Do the Characteristics of a river change downstream?

    This however is only true for the South Bank as the North bank was relatively flat. As the lower course of the Wharfe is situated in a valley, precipitation is lessened and there are fewer winds. Either side of the river the photo above shows residential housing of a terraced and semi-detached nature.

    Also at this part of the river the route is almost like a horse shoe and eventually, it can get cut off to form an ox-bow lake. At the middle course a flood plain begins to form on the valley floor.

    This may well affect the aquatic floras in terms of reproduction etc. River variables change downstream. The variables which should change are: ? Velocity: it always increases however a small amount than width then the channel becomes smoother as there is less friction downstream.

  2. An investigation into changes in channel parameters down the river Horner

    Gradient Decrease Typically a hill becomes less steep as you go down hill. Velocity Decrease - I think that the gradient decreasing will mean the velocity decreases. Where the river is steeper the water should run faster (due to gravity).
