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.

    This result is expected as the average depth is proportional to the hydraulic radius (HR=A/WP). Table 3.11 Hyp. Analysis Explanation 1 There is a jump in velocity of 0.075 m/s to 0.175 between sites 4 and 5 relative to the river course.

  2. An investigation into changes in channel parameters down the river Horner

    lateral I have found possible explanations for all of the above in my data analysis. I have also found that by site six some channel parameters have started to change in the following ways: * Depth decreases * Hydraulic radius decreases * Discharge decreases * Velocity decreases And I have explained them all in a table in my analysis.

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

    Greater sampling would have given me greater confidence that my final conclusion was accurate. On reflection the way in which I actually took the measurements was inaccurate. For example when measuring the flow of the river I timed how long it took a twig to travel 10 metres.

    However, while this is the most accepted explanation of how these landforms are formed, others suggest that kettles holes may not be formed by fluvioglacial deposits and that they are formed by supraglacial deposits instead.

    There is sinuosity of the river channel, caused by erosion of the softer rock and not the harder rock, but there are no actual meanders at this point on the river. The water in the river channel is clear and shallow and the small pebbles on the bottom of the river channel can be seen.

    Stream order 4 is the deepest in the middle and that tells that the river was flowing straight. This graph shows the heights of the right and left banks for each stream order. The heights of the banks have increased after every stream order changed, and the right banks are smaller than the left banks in every stream order.
