    Hehe, you're so cute! I guess it means things like deltas, levees, meanders, pools, rifles? Hmm. Dunno!

    Do you have any case studies for rivers (doesn't have to be this q). I've only got the Nile (which is only good for deltas and fertile soils) and the River Lemon (which I'm using for flood management). You got any more?

    Erm i think the Huang He river may fit there as the type of rock it flows through is very easily erodable. Therefore it has a huge sediment load. Human factors that affect it is the building of the Aswan dam that blocks the sediment , and has led to problems downstream.

    Use your local river. It is much easier to answer these questions if you can talk (confidantly) about specific areas and places, that you know well. Using a big famous river isn't necessarily the best thing for two reasons. One, everyone will rehash the same stuff over and over again (Nile, Amazon, Mississippi), and an examiner might appreciate something a little different. Secondly, you probably know more than you think about you local area, and if the facts and figures you learn have an immediate application it is often easier to remember.

    Physical factors can be the rock types and gradient etc

    Human factor will be channeling, dredging, abstraction addition (In London there's the Thames Barrier which is big enough for anyone!)

    It's a small river in Devon, that I did some work on during my field trip there. And guess what the start of it's called? That's right, the Lemon source! Hehe. Made me laugh anyway!

    AS, Edexcel. I expect there are some overlaps with OCR though.
