Wave Cut Platforms

Great video (click here)

this covers headlands and bays (briefly) energy erosion (abrasion and attrition) and Wave Cut Platforms. It even touches on stacks and stumps. It is very clear and explains the whole thing in 3 3/4 minutes 🙂

Stacks – Old Harry as an example

This video takes a bit of time to get on to Old Harry, but when it does it is excellent. It covers erosion, hydraulic action, wave cut notches, faults, crevices or cracks, caves arches and then stacks and stumps… all with good animation and film. Click HERE to view the page

Maldives – case study of rising sea levels

-maldives

New and updated padlet page with all you need on the Maldives for the AQA A GCSE Geography course. Click here… the exam may require you to talk about the economic, environmental and political effects of rising sea levels, so look for those three things on this page

DON’T FORGET

You will also need to know the reasons behind sea level rise. These briefly are:

  1. Melted water from the ice caps flowing into the sea
  2. Melted water from glaciers flowing into the sea
  3. “Thermal Expansion: when the water warms it expands

All these three causes are themselves created by Global Warming
