This is a guide to carrying out geographical fieldwork on the topic of rivers. It contains concise background information on the stable channel balance and the features to look out for (both in the field and on a map) in the upper and middle courses, where fieldwork is most likely to be carried out.

A quick reference guide on the back cover contains a fieldwork reminder of the channel geometry features to look out for, plus a ready-made 'stone board' with radius of curvature measurement chart and Power's Shape Index guide.

This is just one of the FSC's range of fold-out charts, designed to help users identify of a wide range of plants and animals. Each chart is laminated to make it splashproof and robust for use outdoors. Clear colour illustrations and text by experts in the subject make these valuable resources for all age groups.
