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.

Middle

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?

    have been used, which can measure the velocity of the river by being placed in the river and can give an immediate, accurate reading. My investigation question was "How does the Efficiency and Cross-Sectional of a River Change Down Stream?"

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

    I believe that this is human error as they might have picked up pebbles that were on the ground than in the river. This of course would mean that they would be less eroded and maybe considered as anomalies. The erosion (Attrition)

  1. River channel processes.

    They also result from beds with loose sand etc, those which are easily eroded. The overall river is often inefficient as the wetted perimeter is large, the smaller streams allow the river to become more efficient as their individual hydraulic radius is larger and so the smaller rivers erode their banks and the deepening of these smaller rivers can occur.

  2. This project will study about the way the river Conwy in north Wales changes ...

    And they usually became broad and also the great amount force of the water eroded the rocks on the side of the river. DEPTH: I expect the rive depth to be increase as it travels downstream, because it is closer to the sea level, usually sea level will be deeper and also there will be many tributaries joining them.

  1. Do the Characteristics of a river change downstream?

    In the uplands close to the source, the stream is high above its base level (usually sea level). This gives Backstone Beck a lot of potential energy. The stream is also trying to reach its base level so, so the main processes at work are erosional.

  2. The aims of our study were to measure and analyse the changing characteristics of ...

    10. What precautions should you take? You should take full precautions to keep yourself and your class mates safe and not put their lives or health at any risk. You should wear Wellington boots, rubber gloves (when picking out the stones for angularity and load size) and be vigilant for over hanging branches and tall nettles.

    the concentration of carbonic acid and humic acid. This happens continuously and is independent of river discharge and velocity * Attrition- This is the erosion of the bedload of itself. Boulders collide with other materials causing them to break and become smaller and rounder in appearance.

    The invertebrates were disturbed and we even got a stone with quite a few invertebrates sucking onto it. Both kick samples were timed to be exactly 30 seconds each. When we were measuring the flow rate we used a hydro prop flow metre.
