Many students considering A-level projects in physical geography are put off studying river processes and dynamics because they perceive the fieldwork as dangerous or requiring expensive equipment. With a little ingenuity, forward planning and patience it is perfectly possible to overcome these problems and conduct an interesting and rewarding project on some aspect of bedload transport or stream dynamics. This article outlines the reasons why research into bedload transport and river dynamics is necessary and discusses some of the techniques researches use. Particular emphasis is given to the simpler techniques which might be suitable for project use.
