Crowded Coasts Fieldwork
The field studies below have been developed to support the Edexcel GCE 'Crowded Coasts' unit for first examination in 2009.
|Crowded Coasts fieldwork and research|
|Reasons for growth of two contrasting coasts||Fieldwork and research to show how factors e.g.
flat land, soil fertility, equable climate and biodiversity, potential for
fishing, recreation/tourism, industrial and port development and
accessibility have shaped the development and growth of contrasting crowded coasts over time.
|Development v conservation||Fieldwork and research into the pressures on the
coast when development and conservation meet head on including:
|Coastal erosion OR coastal flooding: rates and impacts||Fieldwork and research into rates of coastal retreat or degree of coastal flood risk and the resulting impacts on developments and people at a small scale.|
|Coastal management||Fieldwork and research into:
