Going to the Beach?

Instructions on Completing Activities for the Coastal Geomorphology Laboratory

task 1 calculate erosion along the suffolk coastline in the u k using ground survey1
Task 1: Calculate erosion along the Suffolk coastline in the U.K. using ground survey
  • Finish table
  • Calculate erosion rates
task 2 analyze change in a coastal landslide using aerial photography1
Task 2. Analyze change in a coastal landslide using aerial photography

Bluff (small cliff) retreat from landsliding: how fast? how much?

task 2 analyze change in a coastal landslide using aerial photography3
Task 2. Analyze change in a coastal landslide using aerial photography

Analyze 1976 and 1995 and then answer: how much farmland has been lost (sq. meters) and how fast?

  • Download these files from the web page version of the assignment
  • Print ’76
task 2 analyze change in a coastal landslide using aerial photography4
Task 2. Analyze change in a coastal landslide using aerial photography

Analyze 1976 and 1995 and then answer: how much farmland has been lost (sq. meters) and how fast?

  • Print ’76
  • Color lost farmland
  • Make 10 m grid
  • Count up lost area
  • Measure biggest distance lost & calculate rate of retreat

Activity 1: Task 5 Calculating very long-term rates of cliff retreat using offshore rocks and sea stacks

~6000 YbpPretty close to today…

Approx. last major glacial event

Sea level change curves

overview of activity 2
Overview of Activity 2

You study change in depositional (beach) contexts, using a mixture of maps, aerial photography, and satellite images.

activity 2
Activity 2
  • Task 1. Analyze human modification of California beach: Humboldt Bay
  • Task 2. Analyze change accomplished by major storms
    • Study the effect of Hurricanes on the Dauphin Island (a barrier island)
task 1 analyze human modification of california beaches1
Task 1. Analyze human modification of California beaches

You analyze Humboldt Bay… add Jetties
