Transcript of "OCR B Geography Fieldwork Investigation Intructions 2012 submission"

  1. 1. Why is there a need to protect the coastline in Sitges FIELD WORK FOCUS TITLE
  2. 2. AIM OF PROJECT To describe and explain why is there a need to protect the coastline in Sitges RESEARCH QUESTIONS TO BE ANSWERED RQ1 – Is there a need to protect the coastline in Sitges? RQ2 – Are the coastal management strategies effective in preventing coastal erosion in Sitges?
  3. 3. Data Collection What should you have collected? • Beach profile measurements • Bipolar evaluation • Field sketches and photos • You should have also noted down general observations, problems and ideas for improvement. There is a fair amount of information in your work booklet.
  4. 4. What is involved in your Controlled Assessment? Setting the scene - Introduction Data Collection Methods Data Collection Fieldwork Data presentation Data Analysis Conclusion Evaluation There are 7 sections to the project 1200 word limit
  5. 5. Getting Started!!!!! • You can put together and bring in relevant maps, pictures and diagrams for your introduction!!!! • You will then be given 1 hour to write up your introduction.
  6. 6. This involves…… Writing out the 2 research questions. 1. Is there is a need to protect the coastline in Sitges (see booklet) 2. Are protection methods often effective? (see booklet) Then you need to outline the expected outcomes. This should link into the theory that you have learnt in lessons. What effect would you expect geology (rock type) and longshore drift to have on this part of the coastline? Look at the Geology map. Bands of Hard rock and soft rock. Use the Geography textbooks to help you. Think about LSD and fetch of the waves as an erosive power. What methods of protection could they use in Sitges and why? You then need to include two maps. The first should be a map of Europe with Sitges clearly marked. The second should be a map of Spain with Sitges clearly marked. You then need to provide a written description of the location – do this by annotating your maps. Setting the Scene. – RECOMMENDED WORD LIMIT 200-300 (min 200) TIME LIMIT 1 HOUR This section is all about setting the scene…..
  7. 7. Location 1: Sitges Sandy Beaches x 4. Geology = Clay=weak rock that is eroded quickly. Problem= expensive houses €7 million house, see picture. Solution: sea walls, groynes, beach nourishment. Locations for wave action study
  8. 8. Location 2: Sitges shingle beach. Clay geology=fast eroding coast. The groynes in Sitges central beaches have starved this beach of its LSD material. Lots of pebbles and rocks but no sand. Groynes and rip rap present.
  9. 9. Location 3 – Destroyed Nightclub. Destroyed 9th October 2O1O
  10. 10. How does the Geology affect coastal landforms at Sitges?
  11. 11. Look carefully at the map and the key above. What landforms would you expect at each location that we visited? Clays, quaternary sands and gravels Gravels, sands, silt and quaternary clays Limestones, sandstones, marls. Marine estuary. Miocene Conglomerates and red clays, inferior Miocene Grey and black limestones and calcarenites creams. Neritic and brackish. Cretaceous Yellow marls and calcareous dolomite loams. Pelagic. Cretaceous. Black dolomites, Jurassic
  12. 12. How does wave action affect coastal landforms at Sitges? Wider gently sloping beaches Narrow steeper sloping beaches
  13. 13. Fetch, frequency and direction of waves
  14. 14. Part 2 – Data collection methods Recommended time 1hour Recommended word count 200 For each piece of data you collected:  Describe the technique used (mention measurements, equipment used, type of sample, sample size)  Explain how the information you collect will help you with the aim of your project or research questions.  Suggest any problems there were with the technique.
  15. 15. Draw a table like the one below & complete for each piece of data you collected. Data Collection Method Description of method How will it help me? What problems were there with it Bi Polar survey Longshore Drift Beach profile (Angle of beach) Fieldsketches & photographs Observation & Fieldnotes
  16. 16. Mark Scheme for Methodology Level Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 • They have used their skills and a limited number of techniques • They have suggested a limited number of techniques and technologies to undertake their enquiry. • • They have selected and used a variety of skills and appropriate techniques • They have suggested a variety of techniques and technologies to undertake their enquiry. • They have suggested possible limitations, • They have effectively used a wide variety of skills and appropriate techniques • They have suggested an appropriate variety of techniques and technologies to undertake their enquiry. • They have suggested appropriate and valid limitations,
  17. 17. Part 3 – Data Presentation • Annotated photos or coastal protection methods. • Annotated sketches • Hand drawn & annotated maps – Geology, location of beaches • Map to show prevailing winds & frequency proportionate arrows – backing up why the coast needs to be protected. • Bi polar results with annotated supporting photos of what you were looking at.
  18. 18. Part 4 - DATA ANALYSIS • In this section you need to:- • Describe the key findings shown by the data you have presented. (this means say what your data shows). • Explain your findings. (this means give reasons for your findings). • REMEMBER YOU ARE TRYING TO IDENTIFY DIFFERENCES BETWEEN DIFFERENT SECTIONS OF THE COASTLINE IN SITGES
  19. 19. Part 5 CONCLUSION AND Part 6 EVALUATION • In this section you need to:- • Revisit the two research questions set out in your introduction (re-read your expected outcomes). • Tackle each question separately, you need to make substantiated conclusions (this means conclusions that are supported by your data).
  20. 20. Continued…. Evaluation • You need to comment on the SUCCESSES of the investigation and more importantly the LIMITATIONS of the investigation. • You need to make suggestions for improving and extending the investigation.
  21. 21. SUMMARY • Describe your findings. • Explain your findings. • Make conclusions that refer back to the original research questions. • Comment on the successes and limitations of your study. • Finally say how you could improve and extend your study.
  22. 22. Data Analysis, Conclusion and Evaluation • Their limited evidence has been analysed and interpreted to allow a very simplistic conclusion to be made. • They have attempted an evaluation. • Their written work contains mistakes in spelling, grammar and punctuation, which sometimes hinders communication. • They have either written relatively little or it is of some length but the content is not focussed on the task(s). • Their evidence has been analysed and interpreted to allow a plausible conclusion to be made. • They have made an overall evaluation with some suggested possible limitations, solutions and extensions to enquiry. • Their written work is legible and spelling, grammar and punctuation are mostly accurate. Meaning is communicated clearly. • They have written with some precision & succinctness, but have not exceeded the prescribed word limit. • Their evidence has been analysed and interpreted to allow a substantiated conclusion to be made. • They have made a critical evaluation with limitations, possible solutions and an extension to their enquiry suggested. • Their written work is legible and spelling, grammar and punctuation are accurate. Meaning is communicated clearly. • They have written with precision and succinctness, so that they do not exceed the prescribed word limit. Marks 0 -8 9 -16 17 -24
