The Turkwel River has had an important influence on the landscape on which our human ancestors lived. The river provided water to support a riverine forest, eroded parts of the land, and deposited massive amounts of sediments too.

Students work on the fluvial transport assignment
The students under Professor Craig Feibel, study water velocity, depositional and erosional features of the Turkwel river. This exercise will help them better understand how the ancient landscapes were sculpted by the Turkwel river over millions of years.
Taking place in the river, the exercise was fun because it gave students a chance to cool off!
