    As long as you described it, you'll get the marks. They usually ignore any irrelevant stuff.

    I think they were looking for Shoreline Management Plans... so hold the line, advance and so on.

    Hard engineering (if there is some at your area of study) should get you some marks!

    GEOG2 will be based on rivers. It's been population for last 2 years. I'd revise water budget, Hjulström curve and hydrographs.

    Of course on top of fieldwork study.

    If you talked sea defences and gave benefits as to what it protects, I think so. I wrote about Hornsea's sea wall, rip rap and groynes protecting 8000 people, road links, historical sites. Bad points i said that south of the defenses get the worst erosion as they're not protected.

    you need to write about areas of hard engineering as that protects the coast the best and has more impact on people's lives as they are saved, best study was to talk about holderness where there are loads of options scattered over the coastline
    Soft or hard engineering (choose casestudy of your choice )
