RIVER REALITIES - THE RIVER MURRAY AND THE LEGACY OF CYCLONE DEBBIE
Although this unit has an Australian focus the processes and landforms are valid for general river studies. This unit begins with the photograph of the Walker Flat area of the River Murray. It then broadens into a n investigation of formation (sedimentary limestone) and the action of river activity resulting in the deepening and widening of the valley. Human uses of the different parts of the map area broaden the study. Students can work out the erosional and depositional processes in the landscape. A worksheet and question/interpretation sheets (in colour and black and white are provided for duplication and handouts. A related final page is given to show the interconnection between Cyclone Debbie and the flooding of Queensland/Northern New South Wales coastal rivers (March/April 2017)
