Y11 River Profiles

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:

  1. Why is the river load more rough and angular near the source of the river?
  2. 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)

Y11: How Japan has recovered so far from the Tsunami

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?

Holderness is on the NE coast of England. It is an example of a rapidly eroding coastline. You need to know the causes of this rapid erosion and the effects that it has. I have attached the powerpoint I used in class complete with the video links below:
