On the side of the valley the bank is quite swampy and sandy. On the other side, the mountain side, there is once again mainly deciduous forest. The banks are fairly broad and do not drastically increase in height as in location 2. The river at location three is the widest. Beyond bankful there are mainly gravel and pebbles, but until then the banks consist of mud and sand. Figure 6.3 - In the foreground it is possible to see big boulders and the background shows the pebbly beach.

  1. River channel processes.

    These are called the pioneer species. They can cope with the harsh abiotic factors that are experienced here. As the marram grass continue to live and die, they release nutrients from there one decomposing parts i.e. N locked up in the compounds can be used. This in turn results in more humus added to the soil and so the soil will become more fertile.

    Rank Correlation Coefficient then more than five sets of data were required. So if I did this again I would take more readings to get an accurate Spearman's Rank Correlation Coefficient. Analysis and explanation. I have now done enough research to answer the title, 'To what extent does the River Lyn conform to the Bradshaw model of River characteristics?'

    and the highest banks. The right side of the bank is shorter (154cm) than the left side (176cm). The water width is also higher (135cm) than the rest of the stream orders. The channel width is the highest (387cm) because of the erosion of the banks.

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

    To work out the cross-sectional area I needed to times the depth by the width. For site one, the equation can be seen below: dw = csa 8.1 x 1.9 = csa Looking at the Bradshaw model, the cross-sectional area of the stream increases the closer it gets to the mouth.

  1. Study the downstream changes of Loughton Brook.

    This is because the river smoothes the pebbles and wears them away as it transports them downstream before depositing them. Transportation occurs through traction, saltation, suspension and solution. The longer that they have been transported, the smoother they are as they have spent the maximum time in the water being rounded.

    2. There is a gradual increase in the hydraulic radius downstream in the River Holford. 3. There is a gradual increase in the average depth downstream in the River Holford. 4. There is a significant relationship between velocity and hydraulic radius downstream across the River Holford.

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

    As the depth increased the discharge increased. Again this was due to the fact that as the depth increased there was a greater volume of water and so more water could pass through at that point. Because the river is wider than it is deep changes in depth as opposed
