What is an upper course valley like
Steep v shaped and where the source starts
The middle course is
More energy, gentle and lateral sides and wider channel
Lower course
Deep, wide flat and the mouth /low energy for deposition
Features of the upper course
A waterfall( Erosion of the soft rock that leads to step due to the remaining hard rock.The hard rock is eroded causing a drop. The undercut erosion leads to collapsed rock to swirl and form a plunge pool by abrasion. Retreat = gorge) Interlocking spurs -lack of power to erode laterally so it winds around hilss
Features of middle course
Meanders - river flows around a bend, one side is the thalweg creating a cliff, one side creates a beach by deposition Ox-bowlake - the neck of meander being eroded over time isolating a bend forming a lake
Features of a lower course
Flood plain - wide valley floor, the deposition due to the loss of energy in the river leevees- natural embankments of alluvium that build up (good for farming) Estuaries - river mouth creating mudflats that narrow the channel
Effects of flooding
Development reset , buisness closes, anxiety, pollution, repairs = expensive
Hard engineering and soft examples
HE- manmade so dams and reservoirs SE-natural so flood plain zoning and river restoration (logs to slow velocity)
