Coastline

Fieldwork on the Norfolk Coast

All Year 12 Geography students spent a day at Hunstanton on the Norfolk coast for a Fieldwork investigation day. The aim was to examine the littoral zone from cliffs to nearshore. At low tide students were able to put their knowledge to the test in identifying physical coastal features and evidence of weathering and erosion processes. Students also gathered their own information to bring back to the classroom to apply statistical tests and techniques.

The weather remained dry, bright and so calm that there were no waves on the shore at all!
