Read this page from the BBC Bitesize GCE revision site on rivers to help you finish off your River long profile diagram from the lesson; use both page one and two on this section. Also on your diagram answer these questions:
- Why is the river load more rough and angular near the source of the river?
- Why is there more lateral erosion towards the mouth of the river and more vertical erosion happening near the source? (Tip: use the words ‘gravity’ and ‘slope’ in your answer)
Here is a news article from Japan about the ‘clear up’ of all the waste it created. What do you do with so much debris?
Look at these pictures to see what the coast of Japan looked like just after the disaster and what it looks like today. See what they have cleaned up and rebuilt and what they have not yet. See how some areas have been cleared of the debris but are now just empty land. Look at the masks people are wearing after the tsunami. Why are they wearing them?
