Year 12 Geography Fieldwork at Dawlish Warren

On the 4th March, Year 12 Geography students boldly braved the elements to collect primary data for the compulsory fieldwork element of their course.

Based on Dawlish Warren beach for the day, the British weather threw everything it had at us; wind, rain, hail, and even the occasional glimpse of sunshine. Nevertheless, students collected data to measure such things as the impact of longshore drift on the beach, and the effectiveness of coastal management. Refuge was sought at lunch time in the form of enormous bowls of pasta and cheesy nachos, before braving the elements again.

Well done to all involved. Work now continues in the classroom, manipulating the data, working out statistical correlations, and drawing up conclusions.
