  9. STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT • YOUNG STAGE • Steep banks

  10. STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT • MATURE STAGE • Not as steep banks

  11. STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT • OLD STAGE • Gently sloping banks

  12. STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT • YOUNG STAGE • Steep banks • No floodplain

  13. STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT • MATURE STAGE • Not as steep banks • Small floodplain

  14. STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT • OLD STAGE • Gently sloping banks • Large floodplain

  15. STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT • YOUNG STAGE • Steep banks • No floodplain • Straight path

  16. STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT • MATURE STAGE • Not as steep banks • Small floodplain • Slight meanders

  17. STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT • OLD STAGE • Gently sloping banks • Large floodplain • Large meanders

  18. STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT • YOUNG STAGE • Steep banks • No floodplain • Straight path • Fastest flow

  19. STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT • MATURE STAGE • Not as steep banks • Small floodplain • Slight meanders • Moderate flow

  20. STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT • OLD STAGE • Gently sloping banks • Large floodplain • Large meanders • Slowest flow

  21. STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT • YOUNG STAGE • Steep banks • No floodplain • Straight path • Fastest flow • Heavy erosion

  22. STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT • MATURE STAGE • Not as steep banks • Small floodplain • Slight meanders • Moderate flow • Moderate erosion

  23. STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT • OLD STAGE • Gently sloping banks • Large floodplain • Large meanders • Slowest flow • Little or no erosion
