Geol 1202 Planet Earth Assignment - river evolution In Lecture Ten we looked at how running water in rivers and streams can transport sediment, and how the processes of erosion and deposition play a role in shaping almost every landscape on Earth. In this assignment we will look at one river system in particular. You will be called upon to use your skills in reading maps and contours that you gained from Module 2; if you have forgotten some of the rules for contours then take a quick look at the module again. We will be looking at the area around Wolfville and New Minas, Nova Scotia, as shown in this image from Google Earth. On it you can see several rivers and a number of tributaries. The Google image is just to show you the region; since it does not contain the information you will need you will actually be using two types of maps, a topographic and a geological, which you should be familiar with from Module 2. (These are also available in the Media Library). These online versions allow you to zoom in on specific areas so you will be able to see the details. You should make sure you can view these maps on your computer. I have provided the critical part of the map for you so you can use it to help you find the locations in the assignment; some questions will require you to draw on it and submit a photograph so you will need to print it. What do I do? First, locate the Black River in the southwest corner of the map, just north of Lumsden Pond. Notice that the valley is quite deep; there are several contour lines, close together, on each side of the river. Question 1: What direction does the water in the Black River flow? (use quadrants e.g. north, south, northwest, etc.). You should also draw arrows on or near the river on your printed map sheet indicating the direction the water is flowing. Next find White Rock Mills; here the Black River joins the Gaspereau River. Question 2: What direction does the water in the Gaspereau River flow? (use quadrants e.g. north, south, northwest, etc.) You should also draw arrows on or near the river on your printed map sheet indicating the direction the water is flowing. Question 3: Where does the water end up (where is the mouth of the Gaspereau River) - give the name of the feature? Also indicate the mouth on the map print out. Now look at the area immediately north of White Rock Mills; there is a large valley called Deep Hollow. Looking at the contours you can see that it is about as deep as the Black River Valley, so one might expect a large river to flow along Deep Hollow, but there is none. Instead, there is the very small Hancock Brook. Question 4: What direction does the water in the Hancock Brook flow? (use quadrants e.g. north, south, northwest, etc.) You should also draw arrows on or near the river on your printed map sheet indicating the direction the water is flowing. Question 5: Where does Hancock Brook empty its water (where is the mouth of the Brook) - give the name of the feature? Also indicate the mouth on the map print out. Your observations of these rivers and their tributaries should suggest to you that in the past, perhaps a few thousand years ago, the Black River followed a different path then it does now. Question 6: What path do you think it used to take? (describe it). Question 7: What process might have diverted the waters of the Black River? Write a short account, in one or two paragraphs, of the evolution of the Black River and Gaspereau system. You may, if you wish, create a diagram to show how the rivers evolved and attach it as a jpg. Make sure your drawing is labeled with place names, has a north arrow, and includes your name somewhere in the drawing. What do I submit? You should submit the answers to the questions along with a photo or scan of your annotated map printout. Make sure that the image is readable. Take note that if you do not submit the photo of your printed map your assignment will not be graded and you will receive a zero. Name: Student Number: N 0 1 kilometres 2 3 N ­ 4
