It clearly demonstrates the formation of all required coastal landforms of erosion and deposition. Again using real life examples at Holderenss to illustrate this.
It looks at why the Holderness Coast is so vulnerable to erosion and the impact that this has.
It has an extraordinarily well researched piece of work on how the Holderness Coast is protected from erosion. It uses detalied place based locations such as Withernsea, Hornsea, Bridlington and Mappleton.
Finally, it looks at the positive and negative impacts that human activity is having/has had on Holdereness. This includes a very detailed study of the impact of sea defences at Mappleton. The effect of climate change, using data and articles from The British geological Survey, It examines the impacts of Sites of Special Scientific interest at places such as Hornsea Mere
It gives access to my unique tool Steps to Success which massively helps students structure their answer for high tariff questions. There are videos, GCSE questions and brand new and most up to date research.
