For help understanding the Hjulstrom curve and river processes watch the video and search this "Cool" geography site.  Explore more on this site to check your understanding of landforms. For Unit 1 you may also find The British Geographer site useful.


Processes of weathering - find out how rocks can be weathered. This is important in supplying load to the upper course. The weathered material is moved down slope to the river by different types of mass movement. Find out about these processes and add notes to your work on the upper course.
