The drainage basin provides numerous opportunities to devise and to expedite fieldwork projects which illustrate the character and complexity of fluvial processes. A simple view of the drainage basin is outlined and four main components are distinguished in the form of input, interaction with basin characteristics, losses and output.Specific examples of measurements which can be made of each of the four components of the drainage basin are described, including measurements of precipitation, bed material shape, streamflow and sediment yield.
