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

Longshore Drift in 5 minutes

Excellent video on Longshore drift. Particularly good as it links what happens on the beach to what you should write, draw and annotate in an exam answer.

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.
