By working as part of a team students profile a beach, taking accurate measurements which are entered onto a pocket computer students discuss beach formation and the reasons why beaches differ in shape and sediment size. The cost of the beach hut properties of £40 million is much higher than the £17 million of building 17 groynes which are at present on the spit this also shows how popular the area is if a beach hut is worth. Beach profile results (pdf) as level ocr geography: rivers and flooding (dr challoner's grammar school ) students investigating river environments, measure changes in river variables along the river harbourne.
Controlled assessment - 2014: your controlled assessment is worth 25% of your final grade this year's topic is on: investigate a hard and/or soft engineering strategy(ies) used to manage a stretch of coastline. River gradient index introduction equipment measuring in the field calculations introduction the gradient of a river is a measure of how steeply it loses height. Barcelona field studies centre offers fully inclusive geography, geology, biology, ecology, environmental and tourism field study courses to uk and international schools and colleges throughout the year in an outstanding geographical environment. Hi i'm doing my geography ib hl coursework on beaches and coasts at the moment and since both my hypotheses were proven incorrect by my data im a bit stuck at the analysis bit trying to prove why.
A full marks gcse geography coursework (rivers) in the upper profile of the river you would find mainly vertical erosionwhich cuts downwards in the lower course of the river more lateral erosiontakes place which means the river cuts sideways into the valley page 25 of 59 mouth- this is the river holford’s mouth at kilve beach. For example beach studies of beach profile, the size and shape of pebbles and the movement of beach material and weather study instruments closely linked to (iii) data presentation techniques this should include various types of graphs, maps and diagrams for example line graphs, bar graphs, divided bar graphs, histograms, flow diagrams, wind. 1 beach profiles beach profiles use distance and angle measurements to help you investigate the shape of the beach measuring beach gradient by field studies council / cc by follow a straight transect line from the edge of the sea to the end of the active beach. The main drawbacks of the beach according to the questionnaire2 are shown on diagram 8 more than 1 answer was allowed, therefore the result exceeds 100% in total 2 tourism profile of bournemouth: home tourists constitute a smaller share than foreign travellers, at 40. A sandy beach typically has a gentle sloping profile, whereas a shingle beach can be much steeper the size of the material is larger at the top of the beach, due to the high-energy storm waves.
Beach profiles in excel updated with instructions for excel 2016 producing beach profiles in a spreadsheet is tricky but, with a little formula magic, it can be done. Coursework element - fieldwork coasts introduction a range of techniques that you can use for fieldwork in coastal environments these techniques can be used in the traditional way to study and analyse coastal processes and landforms a2 geography a-ge04 contemporary conflict and challenges beach profiles aims to survey the shape. Beach morphology 1 beach profiles beach profiles use distance and angle measurements to help you investigate the shape of the beach measuring beach gradient by field studies council / cc by follow a straight transect line from the edge of the sea to the end of the active beach. This resource is part of the fieldwork toolkit that supports our gcse geography specification (8035) and sits alongside other resources in the size of beach material 3132 coastal landscapes – longshore drift its course what changes in the cross profile of the river x occur along its course cross profile gradient.
Beach profiles shingle beaches typically have a steep gradient (over 10˚) because the waves easily flow through the coarse, porous surface of the beach, decreasing the effect of backwash erosion and increasing the formation of sediment into a steep sloping back. Our new a level in geography course has been developed in consultation with teachers, employers and higher education to provide learners with a qualification that’s relevant to them and meets their needs we’re part of the cambridge assessment group, europe’s largest assessment agency. Hypothesis 5: that sandy beach profiles in the main town will reflect the processes operating on the shingle beach assumption: (a) that longshore drift occurs and that some sections of the beach are more prone to erosion than others (b) some sections of beach may be aligned with a longer fetch and more prone to erosion from high energy waves. The equilibrium beach profile results from steady wave forcing during the seasonal cycle summer wave conditions move sand onto the beach winter storm waves move sand offshore unusually large storm events result in a disequilibrium profile, and sand may be permanently lost to deep water.
Beach profiling a great piece of fieldwork which always yields decent results in my experience select 2 or 3 locations along a stretch of coastline and get students to profile the beach at each location. - beach profiles using the data below for each site - a diagram showing longshore drift and distance travelled using the data below - bar graphs or line graphs to show wave height and wave frequency. Chi squared test example on coastal deposition imagine you were investigating the size of material deposited on a beach and noticed there were differences as you moved along the beach with pebbles seeming to become larger.
Is a plot of xz data points below the plot is a table containing the x and z data values as well as notes about individual points worksheet for beach profile analysis activity 3. Scientists often refer to beaches’ profile (a cross-shore measure of elevation from the dune to the water across the beach), and there are both summer and winter profiles for each beach due to variation in wind and wave energy between seasons.
