What processes and factors are responsible for distinctive fluvial landforms?
Identify a range of features associated with erosion and deposition in river systems, such as waterfalls, rapids, gorges, V-shaped valleys, knick points, river terraces, flood plains, meanders, ox-bow lakes, levees, deltas.
Identify and explain the processes responsible for the features identified, stressing the interplay of weathering, mass movement and river erosional, transport and depositional processes
Understand the role of various factors in the development of the identified landforms,
New ‘A’ level specifications Students could, with reference to a chosen drainage basin produce a report on the physical and human factors contributing to flood risk. http://betterriverbasins.wwf.org.uk/
Identify a range of features associated with erosion and deposition in coastal systems such as cliffs, shore platforms, arches, stacks, headlands and bays, beaches, spits, bars, barrier beaches, tombolos, sand dunes, salt marshes, submergent and emergent coastlines, raised beaches and relic cliffs, fjords and rias.
Identify and explain the processes responsible for the features identified, stressing the interplay of weathering, mass movement, wave action and tidal processes
Understand the role of various factors in the development of the identified landforms, including rock type and structure, aspect and sea level change.
