One week apart Year 10 and 11 Geographers spent a day collecting data in Southwold. Year 10 recorded wave characteristics and rates of longshore drift. They also measured sediment size and roundness with distance from Easton Bavents Cliffs. They assessed the coastal protection in place and will be in a position to evaluate the Shoreline Management Plan. Year 11 investigated whether the beach profile changed with distance from Easton Bavents using a number of transects. They used a further three transects to record the land use with distance from the Pier and will be able to test this against a Seaside Town Land Use Model. Both investigations will be assessed in their Fieldwork exam.
