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?

    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. How does Loughton Brook change as it moves downstream?

    For Sites 3 and 11 a group failed to gather data on the pebbles therefore both sites were short on ten readings. This is human error which makes it harder for us to analyse and comment on. I was surprised to find at sites 4&5 there were a few pebbles with a roundness of 0.

    CASE STUDY - RIVER RHONE, SWITZERLAND. FLOODPLAINS - These are the flat areas that border a river. They are mainly made up from deposits in the river, silt and sand. This happens when the river floods, it looses a lot of it energy so it will deposit most of its

    BED LOAD SIZE: I expect the size of the bed load will be decreases as it travels downstream because the stones will eroded by solution, saltation attrition, and abrasion. CROSS SECTIONAL AREA: I expect the cross sectional area of the river to be increased as it travels downstream because there

    We had to be careful of this due to the low flow of the river, which could have attracted the disease in a dormant state. We insured that all cuts were covered with a plaster. b) Water- In some areas the water was very deep (pools), fast flowing and in some places slippery.

  2. Do the Characteristics of a river change downstream?

    The altitude at the source of Backstone Beck is approximately 315m above sea level. The level at which the beck meets the river is roughly 100m above sea level. The site at Backstone Beck where we will be collecting our data is roughly to the south of Ilkley and approximately 1 mile downstream from the source of Backstone Beck.

  2. 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.
