RIVER FLOODING- This is the second in a series of three interactive exercises designed to help you learn about river processes such as discharge, flooding, erosion, and deposition.

Each exercise requires you to make careful observations and measurements, do simple calculations, and answer questions about your work. A "Certificate of Completion" will be available to you at the end of each activity.

IMPORTANT: Computer and Operating System Requirements

DEMO: This is the demonstration version of VirtualRiver. Answer checking is disabled.

This activity's first few pages briefly review the concepts of determining stream discharge, but, you are encouraged to complete the first activity of this series, River Discharge, before going on.

Most students can complete this exercise in about 1 to 1.5 hours. Click the "Next" button to begin.
