    Coasts Key Term Quiz Coasts Key Term Quiz Presentation Transcript

    • Coasts Revision Quiz
    • Fetch Groyne Spit Rip Rap Corrosion Corrasion Hydraulic Action Attrition Traction Saltation Solution Suspension Longshore Drift Wave Cut Platform Stack Cove Wave cut notch Cave A type of sea defence used to stop sediment moving along the coastline
    • Fetch Groyne Spit Rip Rap Corrosion Corrasion Hydraulic Action Attrition Traction Saltation Solution Suspension Longshore Drift Wave Cut Platform Stack Cove Wave cut notch Cave When small stones travel along the sea bed by ‘leapfrogging’ over each other
    • Fetch Groyne Spit Rip Rap Corrosion Corrasion Hydraulic Action Attrition Traction Saltation Solution Suspension Longshore Drift Wave Cut Platform Stack Cove Wave cut notch Cave When sea water has a chemical reaction with rocks such as limestone and dissolves it.
    • Fetch Groyne Spit Rip Rap Corrosion Corrasion Hydraulic Action Attrition Traction Saltation Solution Suspension Longshore Drift Wave Cut Platform Stack Cove Wave cut notch Cave A feature that develops between high and low tide marks
    • Fetch Groyne Spit Rip Rap Corrosion Corrasion Hydraulic Action Attrition Traction Saltation Solution Suspension Longshore Drift Wave Cut Platform Stack Cove Wave cut notch Cave A feature caused by a retreating coastline, when a large rocky area is exposed at low tide
    • Fetch Groyne Spit Rip Rap Corrosion Corrasion Hydraulic Action Attrition Traction Saltation Solution Suspension Longshore Drift Wave Cut Platform Stack Cove Wave cut notch Cave The movement of material along the coastline
    • Fetch Groyne Spit Rip Rap Corrosion Corrasion Hydraulic Action Attrition Traction Saltation Solution Suspension Longshore Drift Wave Cut Platform Stack Cove Wave cut notch Cave A very large beach- horse shoe shaped
    • Fetch Groyne Spit Rip Rap Corrosion Corrasion Hydraulic Action Attrition Traction Saltation Solution Suspension Longshore Drift Wave Cut Platform Stack Cove Wave cut notch Cave Sediments do not dissolve completely they are held in the water making it look cloudy
    • Fetch Groyne Spit Rip Rap Corrosion Corrasion Hydraulic Action Attrition Traction Saltation Solution Suspension Longshore Drift Wave Cut Platform Stack Cove Wave cut notch Cave The force of the waves traps air inside the cliff causing pressure and areas of weakness to occur
    • Fetch Groyne Spit Rip Rap Corrosion Corrasion Hydraulic Action Attrition Traction Saltation Solution Suspension Longshore Drift Wave Cut Platform Stack Cove Wave cut notch Cave When stones and rocks smash into one another making stones smaller, rounder and smoother.
    • Fetch Groyne Spit Rip Rap Corrosion Corrasion Hydraulic Action Attrition Traction Saltation Solution Suspension Longshore Drift Wave Cut Platform Stack Cove Wave cut notch Cave A long beach with a hooked end
    • Fetch Groyne Spit Rip Rap Corrosion Corrasion Hydraulic Action Attrition Traction Saltation Solution Suspension Longshore Drift Wave Cut Platform Stack Cove Wave cut notch Cave When small stones and boulders crash together and become rounder and smoother
    • Fetch Groyne Spit Rip Rap Corrosion Corrasion Hydraulic Action Attrition Traction Saltation Solution Suspension Longshore Drift Wave Cut Platform Stack Cove Wave cut notch Cave Also known as abrasion, material is hurled at the cliff and scours it making it smaller
    • Fetch Groyne Spit Rip Rap Corrosion Corrasion Hydraulic Action Attrition Traction Saltation Solution Suspension Longshore Drift Wave Cut Platform Stack Cove Wave cut notch Cave A weakness in a cliff that has grown into a large hole
    • Fetch Groyne Spit Rip Rap Corrosion Corrasion Hydraulic Action Attrition Traction Saltation Solution Suspension Longshore Drift Wave Cut Platform Stack Cove Wave cut notch Cave When large stones and boulders are rolled along the sea bed.
    • Fetch Groyne Spit Rip Rap Corrosion Corrasion Hydraulic Action Attrition Traction Saltation Solution Suspension Longshore Drift Wave Cut Platform Stack Cove Wave cut notch Cave A column of rock left behind after erosion has caused the cliffs around it to collapse
    • Fetch Groyne Spit Rip Rap Corrosion Corrasion Hydraulic Action Attrition Traction Saltation Solution Suspension Longshore Drift Wave Cut Platform Stack Cove Wave cut notch Cave The distance a wave has travelled.
