Hey need help on a definition
what is the graded profile of a river?
Graded profile is the term given to the long profile of a river in equilibrium, when inputs and outputs are balanced. A graded profile shows a gradient that decreases progressively down valley.
Over a long period of time, a river may display an even and progressive decrease in gradient down the valle, creating the typical cmooth concave shape which has adjusted to the discharge and load of the river.
