Experiential Learning

GEOG 313 - River Geomorphology

This course includes two types of experiential learning – labs and a field trip – both of which facilitate skill development and exploration of course concepts. On the 2-day field trip you explore drainage basin and flood hydrology, river channel hydraulics, sediment transport and river morphology and change along the southern section of the Fraser River and several of its tributaries. It provides you with hands-on stream survey skills and an appreciation of alluvial rivers and the processes by which they modify the landscape around you. This course is recommended to students interested in geography, earth science, environmental science, water science, natural resource management, and anyone who is curious about their natural surroundings.
