To draw your beach profile
Analysis of Beach Profiles top
(Put this as your overall title)
Take each beach profile in turn and write a paragraph to analyse the information you have got on the beach.
Analysis of Burton Bradstock beach profile
(this is the sub-title)
Write a paragraph about Burton Bradstock beach include the following:
Use the following to help you
Burton bradstock beach is at the far Northwest end of Chesil beach. It is the only part of the beach that can be described as sandy and is the only part backed by cliffs. There are two main cliff types on either side of the main entrance. The furthest northwest is a vertical sandstone/limestone cliff ( this is where we did our profile). The one slightly to the southeast is Burton beach and is a sloping clay cliff.
*If you are going for a high grade you will need to include a beach profile for the sloping clay cliff as well. You will also need to talk about this in your analysis giving the same information as above and also comparing it to the sandstone/limestone cliff profile.
Analysis of West Bexington beach profile
Write a paragraph about West Bexington beach include the following:
West Nexington lies around 6km southeast of Burton Bradstock but is completely different. It is still a normal beach and not yet a spit however is made up of shingle rather than sand. It has a berm, storm ridges and a back slope.
Analysis of Abbotsbury beach profile
Write a paragraph about Abbotsbury beach include the following:
Abbotsbury is 6km southeast of west Bexington. At Abbotsbury where we did out profile chesil beach is still a typical shingle beach, but a little way along the coastline changes direction inland whilst the beach continues in a straight line. As it leaves the land it traps water behind it this is called the Fleet Lagoon and by leaving the land it is now a spit.
*Again if you are going for that high grade you will also need to include a profile of the second area at this site, which is, where the coastline changes direction at it becomes a spit. Again you will need to talk about this in your analysis.
Analysis of Chesilton beach profile
Write a paragraph about Chesilton beach include the following:
Chesilton is 29km (18 miles) southeast of West Bay and 16km south east of Abbotsbury. At this point Chesil beach rejoins the land at the isle of Portland and becomes a special kind of spit called a tombolo.
Conclusion of Beach Profile Results top
(Put this as your title)
Include the following in your conclusion in as much detail as you can:
Repeat what we expected to see happen to the height width and slope of Chesil Beach as you go from Burton Bradstock to Chesilton.
Write a detailed comment on what you saw happening to the height, width and slope of the beach from your results that you have drawn up as beach profiles.
Try to explain the results that you actually saw happen (this is the bit that you gets most marks for if it is really good)
