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)
