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)
