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

Y10 revision resources for Coastal Processes and Erosional Landforms

Burton Bradstock

 

1/ If you need to check the meanings of key words check here

Coastal zone keywords

2/ To help you revise “Caves arches stacks and stumps” This video approaches it in a different way but is very good (and uses the word discordant, which you could as well) Also BBC bitesize is good on this

3/ To help you revise “Bays and headlands” use slides 8, 9 and 10 from this powerpoint we used in the lesson headlands and bays

4/ To help you revise “Wave cut platforms” use BBC Bitesize

coastal Landforms and Processes via the BBC

God bless the BBC. they have some “really-useful-to refer-to” pages and video clips when you need to check up on information. I have hyper-linked all the relevant ones for the coasts topic on our syllabus on this powerpoint.

Coastal zone Landforms Revision

Burton Bradstock

I have written previously about answering those “using a diagram describe the formation ….” questions in the physical paper. you can find that here One of the key aspects you need to get correct is the sequence (or order) of events and to get full marks you need the whole sequence from start to finish.  I am attaching below a revision sheet to help you learn the sequence for the formation of :

  • wave cut platforms
  • beaches
  • bays and headlands
  • caves, arches, stacks and stumps
  • spits and bars

Coastal Landforms Revision Sheet Each part of the formation is included but is in the wrong order. you can revise this by simply working out the correct order and checking against your book, but it would also be a good idea to draw a diagram or series of diagrams to show the formation and use the statements on the sheets to annotate your drawing. finally you should then of course have a go at an exam question to check your learning. I have posted all the past exam questions previously and you can find them here
