Introduction

Introduction

  • A river is made up of 3 parts:

Upper Course

Middle Course

Lower Course


The upper course

The Upper Course

  • The upper course is the highest section which is found in the mountains or hills. Here the river erodes a v-shaped valley, the path is fairly straight and it flows downhill steeply. The landforms that are common in this course of the river are waterfalls and gorges.


The middle course

The Middle Course

  • In the middle course the angle that the river flows down is less steep, the river begins to meander and the valley sides are also less steep. Common landforms here are river beaches and river cliffs.


The lower course

The Lower Course

  • The lower course has the gentlest slopes - both in long profile and across the valley floor. This almost flat land is known as the flood plain. The river may have very large meanders and ox-bow lakes. The mouth of a river is when it reaches open water - either a lake or the sea. Under certain conditions a delta can be found here.
