River Study:

Compare the local rivers at two points

The first high on the mountainside as a fast moving stream in a V shaped valley, and again as the gradient lessens and the flow reduces. As conditions permit we can take cross sectional measurements and compare flow rates.

Forest Study:


Compare and contrast different areas of woodland

Site one is commercial forestry with coniferous species and minimal variation. Site two is broadleaved woodland managed for wildlife and conservation.
