Resource summary

Question 1

Question
Choose the right land formation to match the description. "Low waves that bring sand and shingle to build up a beach."
Answer
  • Destructive Waves
  • Constructive Waves
  • Swash

Question 2

Question
STACK FORMATION. First, there is a [blank_start]crack[blank_end] opened up by hydraulic action. It eventually gets bigger and forms a [blank_start]cave[blank_end] by hydraulic action and [blank_start]abrasion[blank_end]. This becomes larger. Then it breaks through the headland forming a natural [blank_start]arch[blank_end]. This then gets eroded and collapses leaving a tall rock [blank_start]stack[blank_end]. This is further eroded forming a [blank_start]stump[blank_end].
Answer
  • crack

Question 3

Question
Long shore drift occurs in areas where prevailing winds approach at a perpendicular angle.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 4

Question
Tick the three man made features that are meant to prevent erosion.
Answer
  • Groyne
  • Cliff barrier
  • Sea Wall
  • Revetments
  • Beach defence

Question 5

Question
What is the distance that the wind blows over the sea called?
Answer
  • Non prevailing wind
  • Prevailing wind
  • Fetch

Question 6

Question
The stack goes through the process of erosion in the final stage of stack formation.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 7

Question
What is the proper geographical definition of a lagoon?
Answer
  • A shallow body of water, especially one separated from a sea by sandbars or coral reefs.
  • Salt water formed around the marsh next to an estuary
  • A freshwater lake formed behind a bar.

Question 8

Question
Headlands are formed when the sea attacks a section of coast with alternating bands of [blank_start]hard[blank_end] and [blank_start]soft[blank_end] rock.
Answer
  • hard
  • soft

Question 9

Question
Coastlines where the geology alternates between bands of hard rock and soft rock are called...?
Answer
  • alternating concordant and discordant coastlines
  • concordant coastlines
  • discordant coastlines

Question 10

Question
When a wave breaks, water is washed up the beach - this is called the [blank_start]swash[blank_end]. Then the water runs back down the beach - this is called the [blank_start]backwash[blank_end]. With a constructive wave, the swash is [blank_start]stronger[blank_end] than the backwash. With a destructive wave, the [blank_start]backwash[blank_end] is stronger than the [blank_start]swash[blank_end].
Answer
  • swash
  • backwash
  • stronger
  • backwash
  • swash

Question 11

Question
Tick the 2 boxes that are advantages of groynes.
Answer
  • Prevents the movement of beach material along the coast by longshore drift.
  • Protects the base of cliffs, land and buildings against erosion. Can prevent coastal flooding in some areas.
  • Absorb the energy of waves.
  • Allows the build up of a beach. Beaches are a natural defence against erosion and an attraction for tourists.

Question 12

Question
On a purely sand beach, the coarse sand will be at the top and the finest particles will be by the sea.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 13

Question
The water behind a spit is a .......... environment. Choose the correct answer.
Answer
  • high energy
  • low energy
  • no energy

Question 14

Question
The movement of eroded material up and down, and along the coast is called [blank_start]transportation[blank_end]. When the sea loses energy, it drops the sand, rock particles and pebbles that it has been carrying and deposits them. This is called [blank_start]deposition[blank_end].
Answer
  • transportation
  • deposition

Question 15

Question
Abrasion is when waves cause the rocks to crash against each other, breaking them down into smaller and rounder pieces.
Answer
  • True
  • False
