1. Results Section for CMV

2. Coursework Write-up results The information below is a guide on how to create different styles of graphs that are of use. It is important to try to pick the correct type of graph for the data being used. You should try to produce a variety of styles. Instructions on how to do these tasks can all be found on the school geography web site. . The more styles you use, the more marks you get. The more complex the style of graph, the more marks you get. Try to think of your own original way to present data – you will get more marks!

3. In order to gain more marks, it is important to manipulate your data as much as possible. • So you should consider working out and graphing • averages • % figures • When you are analysing your data and graphs, you need to think about whether your data is • Objective OR • Subjective

4. Different types of graphs. Hypothesis Theory Box Graphs to show bedload roundness Use this scale diagram to explain the significance of the index. Evaluation of results Box

5. Hypothesis Theory Box Possible graph to show bedload size Remember the key question mentioned change downstream? Size or roundness of bedload could also be plotted against distance downstream. Evaluation of results Box

6. Distance of sites downstream from source in Carding mill Valley. These figures can be used to show changes over distance of a particular set of results e.g. plot gradient against distance

7. Hypothesis Theory Box Two graphs - both showing velocity. What is the difference? Is one better than the other? Why? Evaluation of results Box

8. Hypothesis Theory Box Here two different variables have been plotted against each other. There are simply 5 points plotted on the graph where the 2 pieces of data for each location intersect. This is called a scattergraph. Do not join the points up, but try to fit a trend line or line of best fit to the graph. Does your trend show a positive or negative correlation? A scattergraph is a higher skill level, but is of limited use here. WHY? Evaluation of results Box

9. Cross sections The cross section below is a useful style to help show the depth of a particular shape. When creating this, it is important to remember that your numbers should all be negative – measured below the water surface.

10. Hypothesis Theory Box How to draw a river channel cross section. Don’t make your river look like the Mississippi! Think about making small scale graphs Evaluation of results Box Work out a sensible horizontal and vertical scale to take into account the distances at all the sites!

11. River channel Profiles Use key questions to help you annotate around your river channel profile graphs • Which is the shallowest part of the river? Why? • Where is deepest part of the channel? Why? • Why is this river channel so narrow or wide? • Is the river channel smooth? • Are there any obvious boulders or stones in the channel? • Can you see a river cliff or a slip off slope on any of the sections? • Are there any strange/ unusual results? (Anomalies!) Remember to use numbers in your answers!! You also need to include an evaluation of your results and a link to a river theory Steep river bank here –possible river cliff feature created on outside bend of a meander as water is flowing faster here and so it erodes more vigorously.

12. Annotations All of your graphs need to be annotated in the same manner as the river profiles. Each graph needs a series of labels around it describing what it is showing - refer to highest, lowest, biggest, smallest etc and to any anomalies that are obvious. In these labels refer briefly to a reason as to why these results are the case – ie link to a theory!

13. Land use result table You need to produce a completed table like the one opposite from your own notes and observations on the day! Link the table to the photos of the valley showing land use and also to the base map of the valley. The base map can now be annotated with your observations to show how land use changes downstream. This can be done as an overlay.

14. Landscape sketching - repeat the task for both upper and lower site. Carding Mill Valley Lower Site Sketch Remember to look at school web site for details of how to label your sketch – remember the labels have to be focused towards land use – or the worksheet you have been given Import your photo here and then make a sketch above.Feel free to personalise your work.
