Introduction

Identify The Problem Statement My next door neighbour called John is a newly qualified lawyer. His business is set up in a remote area of England in the Lake District and needs somebody like a secretary to help him out with his paperwork. But the main problem is that he urgently needs somebody to help him out with his paperwork such as mail merging his documents of prospective clients. He has a shortage of money too. So what I have suggested is that for the time being is that I will help him out with mail merging his documents as he is lacking in this section. Analysis of Data - Showing what my Graphs show RG1 - From looking at this graph I can say that from site 1 to site 2 the width in the river increases from 8 to 9 m which means that the river is getting wider by a total of 2m. After this point on the graph between site 2 and 3, the stream width of the river lies stable at 9m which shows that the river width is steady. The river then starts to get wider at site 4 to 10m and then suddenly decreases to just over 7.25m. ...read more.

I can now say that a river flowing down a steep slope or gradient has higher velocity than one which flows down a gentler gradient. For example, the speed of flow in a river that plunges down in the form of a waterfall is much higher than the speed of flow in a river that winds a gentler slope. Channel Roughness - In figure A, of the river dove the channel is smooth - site 1 or 2 while figure B it is rough or uneven - site 7 or 8 with boulders on the river bed as well as rocks that protrude out from the bank. At site 7 or 8 the river will have to overcome such obstacles and therefore there will be more friction and the velocity is reduced. Channel Shape - The greater the wetted perimeter, the greater the friction between the water and the banks and the bed of the channel, and the slower the flow of the river. RG5 - By looking at the discharge graph, I can say that from site 1 to 2 there is a stable or steady increase of about 500 cumecs. The amount of water at site 3in the river or discharge then increases stably to about 2000 cumecs. ...read more.

Conclusion

RG11 - My radar graph shows that an angular type of rock was picked up 2 times, a sub angular type of rock picked up twice, a rounded rock was picked up once and a very rounded type of rock was also picked up once. RG12 - This graph shows 6 angular were picked up, 1 very angular type of rock was picked up and 1 rounded rock was picked up. RG13 - This radar graph shows that 2 very angular rocks were picked up, 3 angular rocks, 2 sub angular and 1 rounded type of rock was picked up. RG14 - From looking at this graph I can say that I picked up 1 very rounded type of rock, 2 rounded rocks, 3 sub rounded rocks, 3 angular rocks and one sub angular rock. RG15 - This graph shows that I picked up 2 angular rocks, 1 sub angular, 6 rounded and 1 very rounded type of rock. RG16 - By looking at this graph I can say that I picked up 4 very rounded types of rocks, 3 rounded rocks, 2 sub rounded rocks, and 1 angular type of rock. From looking at graphs 9 to 16 I can say that you are most likely to find rounded typed of rocks downstream and angular types upstream. ...read more.

  1. How does the Efficiency and Cross-Sectional Area of a River Change Down Stream?

    By looking at fig. 8, I can see that the hydraulic radius increases the further you get down stream which indicates high efficiency. This means that the river's efficiency increases down stream. Now I know that the cross-sectional area and efficiency increases down stream, I needed to see if there was a pattern between

  2. River channel processes.

    forming caves. Stairhole is where the sea has broken through the Portland stone and worked at the shales and clays behind it. We see here that there is an almost vertical wall of Portland stone. The Purbeck beds are heavily folded and have crumbly look.

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

    We then had to take measurements of 'low flow', which was what it was on the day and 'bank full', which was when the river was about to over flow. This will show that the river is very effective as it erodes the edges of the stones down.

  2. Fluid Dynamics - Free surface profiles in an open channel.

    The Critical depth for this flow is 0.096m (9.6x10-2m). (Calculated in Appendix C) All Open channel flows are affected by friction losses. The channel has a roughness coefficient the Chezy coefficient, which is used to determine losses. Each channel has a unique value for the Chezy coefficient, which is predetermined.

  1. Do the Characteristics of a river change downstream?

    There should be more precipitation in general. The average annual rainfall in the Wharfe catchment area varies from 1835mm on Fountains Fell to 590mm at Cawood. There are no prominent instances of land use either side of the stream although most of the land is used for either sheep and goat grazing or simply footpaths used by walkers and hikers.

    We found a total of 7 species; this may be because of misidentification or the contamination of the area we took our results from. There were quite a few freshwater shrimp. This was the most frequent invertebrate found by all 7 groups; there was a total of 402 freshwater shrimp

  1. Velocity of the water will increase steadily as down stream

    This did not match my hypothesis that was because the velocity at site two was measured on a bend so the water travels faster. The method used to find the velocity of the river was not very accurate because, the cork kept getting stuck in the weeds, so the results showed it took at longer time than it actually did.
