1

Hypothesis

Human interactions and physical processes impact upon the honey pot site of hengistbury head

2

Hazards and risks

The sea

The cliff

Coastal management

Beached boats

Animals and dogs

3

Biopolar survey -

Examples of engineering strategies and measured the effectiveness from +2 to -2

Primary data, qualitative

Simple questions , could compare each strategy

Used radar diagram - easily illustrates where the good nd bad areas of a strategy is and is simple

BUT specific questions and scale not extensive enough for some

4

Wave survey

Frequency, period? Height, constructive/destructive, direction of longshore drift

Build accurate picture of the waves and predict wave types

Primary, quantative

Bar chart - easily shows differences

BUT waves only measured at 3 differnent sites

5

Beach profile

Angle of slope at 5m intervals

Physical, quantative

Gave idea of relief

Beach profile line chart - shows gradient and changes

BUT measured at 5m - room for fluctuation so not that accurate and human error

6

Pebble size

Primary, quantative

Pebble width and solroundness

Showed how size increases away form shoreline and strength of waves along coastline

BUT only 10 measure

Scale we worked to exact - so accurate

7

Height of cliffs

Primary, quantitative

Impression of fluctuations and trends

Mathematical

Bar chart easily shows - simple data

8

Footpath transacts and quadrants

Erosions and what plant matter survives

Wuantative and primary

Used block charts

Should have done more sites

9

Public survey

Around 60 sets of data

Primary, quantative

Broad idea

Unique

Clear

Quotes and pie charts

10

Physical processes impacted hengistrbury head ?

Erosion - bay to form , differnent sizes of pebbles

Longshore drug and deposition - beach

Weathering - cliff faces

11

How do humans use hengistbury head

Dogs, cycling and walking

Toilets& cafe

12

How have humans tried to protect hengistbury head

- rock groynes
- dune regeneration
- gabions
- rock armour
- pathway management
- notice boards

13

Do human interactions affect HH more than physical ones ? W

BOTH - pherhaps subjective

Human interactions primarily erode, building works disrupt physical rociesses


Physical - change shape of coastline dramatically e.g. MUdefoot spit

14

Waves - results

Waves were consteuctibe , deposition, as go down beach period and height increases ( east )

15

How many disagree that tourists had negative impact

60%

16

What did footpath transfers show

Every path sloped in middle where humans walked

17

What did sediment roundness show

over 40% was usually very rounded - shoes attrition

18

Sites 1.2 and 3 cliff heights

1- shortest
2- 12 m
3- 6 m


1- HAS path above

2- resistant rock

3- sand dunes

19

Did we collect enough data ?

Collected enough to draw lots of key conclusion
3 FOR human , 5 for physical

20

Any problems collecting data

Lack of time, only 5 mins to collect footpath transacts

21

Disadvantages of bipolar surveys, marine data, beach profiles , pebble analysis and foot path transacts ?

Biopolar - SUBJECTIVE

Marine data - wave height isn't accurate

Beach profiles- only allowed 5m of the cliff

Pebble analysis - confusing to read

Footpath transacts - hard to judge where edges of footpath where

22

How to improve metbods if u repeated study

More careful when collecting - e.g. Pebble diameters should've used rape measures

Better equiptment e.g. Longer ruler for transacts
