As a river moves through it's path it shapes the landscape it different ways. In this class, students will look at the processes of erosion along the length of the river. This will include the examination of vertical and lateral erosion, with a focus on the processes of hydraulic action, abrasion, attrition and solution. This is a really useful class for those in Years 10/11 to get a solid understanding of the different terms involved in the topic allowing students to build their knowledge and understanding.
