Bedforms interact with water flow processes which in turn interact with sediment erosion, deposition and transport processes. These processes then feed back to cause changes in bedforms.

Evaluate scientific methods for different types of research in physical geography. ➤ Appreciate the advantages and limitations of different approaches to physical geography. 1 Introduction Physical geography is about understanding the processes and landforms of the physical environment. 1 illustrates the major components of physical geography.

It also deals with a wide range of processes that affect the landscape of the Earth.

The underlying mechanisms to produce Realism The real mechanisms The actual events The empirical observations that event will include fluctuating temperatures above and below freezing, the presence of water in rock, and expansion and contraction of water within the rock upon freezing and thawing. However, the rock shattering will only occur if the rock contains water and if the rock has been weakened sufficiently by previous weathering. Therefore, while there may be fluctuating temperatures that cause freezing and thawing of water within a rock it will only actually shatter (the event) when the right combination of processes (mechanisms) occur at the right place and right time.
