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)

    As these processes of erosion and deposition continue to occur, the outside of the meander is eroded further, more so in the direction of the river flow. i.e. if the river is flowing to its mouth southwards, the southern end of the meander is eroded more.

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

    \the upslope side is much shallower and smoother due to higher pressure as the ice is forced to move over and around the obstruction, this results in the ice 'polishing' the rock surface. Whereas the downslope side is steep and angular as there is low pressure downslope, as this side

  1. River channel processes.

    lakes Having said this most rivers run through private land meaning that they are the responsibility of the owner but they are advised to consult the environment agency before doing anything to the channel. We also can't overlook that rivers runs through different counties or even countries, for this a watershed approach is used.

  1. Fluvioglacial Landforms

    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. Eskers are long ridges found on the valley floor which are formed when material is

    In addition, there is an increased amount of heather (bog) vegetation growing in the river. Stop 10 G.R.-536 804 The deposition levees at this stop form a distinctive bank. A man made lane is still along side the river. The land surrounding the river is also flat and all the hills are gone meaning there are no V-shaped valleys.
