Welcome to our Coastal Geography revision Course, the ideal way to revise and prepare for your GCSE exam.
This course topics include geology, coastal processes, landforms and management, featuring diagrams to aid understanding.
This course does not cover case studies for the exam.
The next step is to explore the different rock types in a little more detail. This study note take you through the main characteristics and locations of Granite, Basalt, Chalk, Sandstone, Schist and Slate, with images for easier recognition.
How does weather break down rocks? Two methods: freeze thaw weathering and exfoliation. Learn how changes in temperature can cause rocks to crack and break apart over time. This note contains visual illustrations to show the process.
Geological structures at the coast play a large role in the type of landforms present. This study note sets out how rocks and minerals are transported at sea, the types of waves and the types of coastal erosion that can occur.
Learn more about the two distinct Coastal Landforms; Landforms of Erosion and Landforms of Deposition. This slideset provides visual illustrations of each example, making it much easier to understand the processes that occur.
Erosion can have a major impact on the surrounding habitat. Techniques of hard and soft engineering search for a solution to the problems of erosion and removal of sediment at the coastline. This slideset explains and provides a number of examples.
Not only is it natural activity that causes changes to the coastal landscape. Human activities can have a large impact too. Discover what happens when actions are taken to address such changes with a look at the Coastal realignment in Medmerry.
We've covered quite a lot of terms during this Course. Now is the chance to revisit the key terms in Coastal Geography to ensure that you know exactly what each one means. These flashcards provide thorough explanations of all the key terms.
