Extracts from this document...


Geography Coursework Total mark = Name Eugene Romero Form 11 Atkinson Teacher Mr. O' Connor Set 11 ACF Set 1 Introduction The coursework study is based upon the statement: "The proposed housing development at Tidmarsh will have detrimental effect on the River Pang". We have chosen the valleys of the rivers Pang and Loddon as the focus of our study since this allows us to examine important areas, which affect the coursework study. The aim is to find out what whither the housing development will or will not have detrimental affects on the River Pang. ...read more.


* In what ways do people's activities affect natural processes and landforms? * In what ways can processes and landforms be manages to minimise the negative effects and maximise the positive effect on people's activities? * Why do these conflicts arise? How can they best be managed? Methodology At various points on the river Pang measurements are to be taken to examine the hypothesis. This section explains how we conducted out investigation. What we did, why we did it and how we did it. Below is a list of the equipment used: 1) Width There are two measurements that need to be taken. ...read more.


To work out the average you must total up all the depths measured and divide that total by the number of depth readings taken. Depths will be measured at 25cm intervals across the river. This is shown in the diagram below: 3) Wetted Perimeter Using the metric tape, measure all the way around the cross-section of the channel that is in contact with the water. This is shown in the diagram below: HYDROLOGY RECORD SHEET Name of River: Pang Site number 1 Width Depth every 25cm Width Depth every 25cm 0.00 0 3.25 38 0.25 24 3.50 39 0.50 27 3.75 30 0.75 32 4.00 28 1.00 37 1.25 38 1.50 39 1.75 40 2.00 41 2.25 43 2.50 48 2.75 45 3.00 40 ...read more.

  1. Hydrology and Fluvial geomorphology. (Q&A)

    There are no inputs and outputs from the system as a whole - it is self-contained. About 2% of global water is stored as polar ice, snow and glaciers; 0.7% is fresh water in the form of rivers and lakes (surface storage, 0.1%), soil moisture and groundwater in aquifers (0.6%), or atmospheric moisture (water vapour)

    Hydraulic radius is calculated using this method: Hydraulic Radius = Cross-sectional Area (m2) = 0.19 = 0.186m Wetted Perimeter (m) 1.02 Channel Cross-section diagrams The cross-sectional area diagrams are linked to the hypotheses the width of the river channel will increase and the depth of the river channel will increase with distance downstream.

    The wetted perimeter though will be done very accurately using the hand drawn graphs and measuring the lines. The results from this can be seen below. This will hopefully give an insight in to the efficiency of the river at both locations being studied.

    The graph shows that river discharge is fairly similar for sites 1, 2, 4 however sites 3 and 5 are a lot higher than the others, again I think this would probably be down to inaccurate readings. Overall there is an increase and the drop at site 4 may have

  1. Fluvioglacial Landforms

    deposited in subglacial tunnels as the supply of melt water decreases at the end of the glacial period. These streams may carry vast amounts of debris which is under a high amount of pressure in the confined tunnels and some argue that when this pressure is released as the melt water emerges at the snout deposition occurs.

  2. River channel processes.

    There are two main types of delta, arcuate (NILE DELTA, EGYPT) and bird's foot (MISSISSIPPI DELTA, USA) RIVER CHANNEL MANAGEMENT How are rivers interfered with? - building dams - Reductions in bank side vegetation. - Irrigation taking water away from the channel - Dredging to make the channel more efficient

  1. Do the Characteristics of a river change downstream?

    Beck we did not have to change any of the units as the ones we had already used (metres, centimetres, millimetres) all corresponded with each other. Adversities When measuring out the depth we found it difficult occasionally to push the metre stick to the bed of the stream due to the large angular bedload.

  2. To what extent are fluvio-glacial deposits and landforms distinctive?

    The glacial ice scoured out, flattened and further deepened the river valley. The feature seen today is a result of long-run successive cycles, formed over 100,000s of years. The interlocking spurs that lined the Great Langdale valley prior to glacial erosion were also subject to abrasion by the ice.
