    Discuss the impact(s) of rising sea levels on coastal environments. (15 marks) ????
    We're doing that as a timed essay tomorrow, we were told to talk about coastal flooding and the effect that will have on the surrounding area, property, ecosystems, infrastructure, construction of new defences (e.g. Thames barrier after 1953 storm surge) etc and then move on to talk about some submergent coastline features, so rias and fjords

    Explain the causes of sea level change and the formation of resultant coastal
    landforms. (15 marks)

    Help?? What case studies can I use for this

    These are how its caused but what case studies??

    Eustatic change is a global change in sea level relative to the land.
    These can be a fall in sea level – as occurred during glaciations or a
    rise in sea level as is the current situation. This is the result of water
    being added following temperatures warming, glaciers melting and
    thermal expansion as oceans warm. Current concern regarding global
    warming would come into this category.
    Isostatic change occurs on a local level. Again, relative change may
    be positive or negative. This is the result of ice melting on land masses
    and the loss of the additional weight causing land masses to readjust
    and ‘bounce up’. Similarly, plate movement at subduction zones may
    cause the land to rise relative to the sea. Conversely, with additional
    weight e.g. where there are deltas being created of substantial size, the
    land will sink due to the additional weight.
    Landforms resulting from sea level increase/land sinking – fjords,
    rias are likely landforms; estuaries, (submerged forest) are also
    creditable.
    Landforms resulting from sea level decrease/land rising – raised
    beaches and fossil cliff lines are likely responses. Explanation should
    be given.
    Reference to impact of sea level change on coral reefs is valid.
    There aren't any case studies for this question

    Do you know what a gorge is? Is it the big rocks or the gap between them, eg at a waterwall? Thanks

    I was wondering if someone could help me with this: With reference to a local case study, assess the relative importance of age, gender and wealth for the provision of health care. I have a case study on Birmingham (kind of) and I understand how age, gender and wealth can impact the provision of health care, but 'relative importance' is throwing me What does it actually mean? Do I have to go through, commenting on how each factor can impact health care using my case study and then at the end, say: "This one's more important because.." or..? Any help is appreciated

    The salt marshes at Essex are disappearing due to coastal squeeze. Rising sea levels mean that the sea is rising over the salt and is pinned against sea wall causing erosion - this is coastal squeeze. They've introduced soft engineering

    If you do Arid Environments; have you noticed that in the past exam papers (Jan 2013 and June 2011) There have been pictures from the 'AS/A2 Arid environments' book?

    We noticed it the other day in class when going through the book
