    I have to explain the features of the river thames and how some of the things on the diagram happen like terraces and floodplain occur thorugh rejuvenation. (Top part) Have i done it right?



    The diagram in figure 3.47 shows the cross section of the Thames at London. The terraces at the side of the Thames show where floodplains use to be. The river terraces are created by vertical erosion caused by rejuvenation. They are high above the current maximum level of present day flooding., which is why they are still visible The oldest terraces Boyn and Taplow were created when a river cuts rapidly into its floodplain. This cause a pair of terraces to be made.

    I thought terraces were above the water level?
