Geography Coasts NEA

I’m in year 12, and starting my NEA, and my exam board is AQA. My main question for my NEA is “To What Extent does sediment size affect the Coastal Profile at Hengistbury Head?” But I’m struggling with sub question ideas, I’m thinking I might want to do one about how coastal defences affect the beach profile but I’m not 100%. Any ideas??
what data collection do u have? and by coastal profile do u mean beach profile?

So far I am just completing a proposal form for my ideas so no data collection yet, I am planning to do Beach Profiles, Sediment Analysis, Groyne Measuring, and Rip-Rap Measuring. Yeah sorry, I meant Beach Profile :smile:
I think this would be good:
"To what extent does coastal management control the coastal processes in ___"
1st subquestion: How does coastal management influence the coastal processes? - use groyne profile, rip rap and sediment analysis to prove that management is influencing LSD to build up the coast.
2nd subquestion: How has coastal management shaped ____. - use beach profile, I recommend doing a field sketch. Take plenty of photographs too to aid your beach profile and field sketch.
3rd subquestion: Cost Benefit Analysis

Thanks so much, this really helps I have to hand in my proposal form next week, then I can start taking my data. Are you doing your NEA too, what’s yours about?

Hi, I did my NEA already but exam board is edexcel, did this exact structure and got A*, I hope this helps you, it was tricky for me too at the beginning. You can do it!
