Description:

The exercise is a virtual fly through of a river system from its headwaters in the mountains to its mouth at the ocean. As a classroom activity we travel (via satellite images) through a stream system and observe the changes in gradient, stream channel pattern, discharge, and depositional and erosional features. Students are able to observe the topographic settings in which various fluvial systems form.
