Years 10-11 Geography Trip

During their Geography Rivers and Tourism field trip, Years 10 and 11 students engaged in a comprehensive exploration of both the natural and human aspects of the landscape. The primary focus of their journey was to investigate the geomorphology of a river, examining how its characteristics change as it traverses from the upper course to the lower course. This involved utilising various methods, such as assessing river velocity, gradient, bedload size and shape, wetted perimeter, width, and depth. To aid in their investigations, students employed a range of equipment, including ranging rods, metre sticks, clinometers, measuring tape, and callipers.
