An important part of how we study rivers is by dividing landscapes into drainage basins: areas of land that drain water into a common outlet, such as a lake or the ocean. In this video, we team up with fluvial geomorphologist Dr Chris Parker, to explore the different parts of a drainage basin:
- • Drainage divide / watershed
- • River network, including sources, tributaries and confluences
- • River mouth / outlet
