This week ninety-seven Year One Geography students travelled to Bournemouth to conduct fieldwork and aid their study of changing landscapes.

The day comprised of visiting Hengistbury Head and the Bournemouth pier area. Both locations gave students the opportunity to evaluate the effectiveness of the coastal management strategies in place; particularly at Hengistbury where they were able to examine longshore drift and the beach’s profile.

Human Geography student Jake said “I enjoyed being able to conduct fieldwork in two locations and seeing coastal processes in action”

Course Team Leader Thomas Seale said “After two years it was good to get back to the coast and get students collecting data and putting theory into practice”
