The aim of this project is to get students thinking about facts and concepts related to rivers in the field (in real life!). The video of a river is part one of a two-part midterm exam.
Students are tasked to produce a short video or labelled pictures and write explaining different concepts about a river or stream of their choice.
With a friend, students go to a river or stream and, at a minimum, identify and explain: the river location (watershed and geographically), the thalweg, bankfull, provide, geomorphic units, human impacts, the zone (aggregation, degradation, etc.), alluvial vs non-alluvial, sediment size and provide an estimate of the river velocity.
To apply course knowledge in the field and test the understanding of the first part of the course.
