Fieldwork & Research: Coastal Pollution
AIM
To explore two forms of coastal zone pollution ­ understand how to use primary field
investigations and secondary research to do so.
BEACH POLLUTION
Litter is a common form of beach pollution which comes from two sources:
o It is left by beach visitors
o It is deposited by high tides, having been carried from other beaches or
dropped by passing boats
FIELDWORK SAMPLING
At the beach, sample a designed distance e.g. 25m stretch of beach
This could be conducted along a Transect, collecting items of litter within 5m
either side of the `Transect' or at `Random' or `Systematic' intervals along the
transect i.e. Belt or Line Transect.
