Review What’s going to happen to the ball? Why? Erosion features – Add a feature to the diagram on the board and explain it as you go.
Lesson Objectives <ul><li>To be able to define and describe different coastal depositional features . </li></ul><ul><li>To be able to explain how these coastal features have been created by deposition. </li></ul><ul><li>WHY? So next time you’re lying on a beach getting a tan, you’ll understand why you’re lying on sand rather than rocks! </li></ul>
How do Beaches Form? <ul><li>Beaches are one of the most common features of a coastline. Beaches are made up of eroded material that has been transported from elsewhere and deposited here by the sea. </li></ul><ul><li>Constructive waves help to build up beaches. The type of material found on a beach (i.e. sand or shingle) is influenced by the geology of the area and wave energy. </li></ul><ul><li>Material from long-shore drift builds up on the beach </li></ul>Task: Write in your own words
How do Bars Form? <ul><li>These form in the same way as a spit initially but bars are created where a spit grows across a bay, joining two headlands. Behind the bar, a lagoon is created, where water has been trapped and the lagoon may gradually be infilled as a salt marsh develops due to it being a low energy zone, which encourages deposition. </li></ul>
Homework <ul><li>Locate and find pictures of a: </li></ul><ul><li>Beach </li></ul><ul><li>Spit </li></ul><ul><li>Bar </li></ul><ul><li>Tombolo </li></ul><ul><li>Label and stick them in your exercise books </li></ul>
