3rd Year Geography Fieldtrip

On Tuesday October 11th all 3rd year students took a trip to Howth for a mini coastal fieldwork. Our trip began at Howth summit and finished on Balscadden Beach. Students started the day by recalling what they remembered about coastal processes before going on the summit walk. On the way they identified features of coastal erosion and deposition. On reaching Balscadden Beach students completed the fieldwork booklet by carrying out a number of fieldwork activities. These included a wave count as well as completing a sketch of all coastal features identified.  There was also great excitement when a curious seal made an appearance! A great day was had by all.
