  • Courses
    • Upper Course
      • Gradient- Steep
      • V-shaped valley, steep sides. Narrow, shallow channel
    • Medium Course
      • Gradient- Medium
      • Gently sloping valley sides. Wider, deeper channel
    • Lower Course
      • Gradient- Lower
      • Very wide, almost flat valley. Very wide, deep channel
    • Long Profiles
      • Shows you how the gradient changes over the different course
    • Cross Profiles
      • Shows you what a cross-section of the river looks like
