GCSE Geography Module 1 (coasts) revision

This is a revision powerpoint I made in order to put all the things we had been taught for our first geography exam on coasts together. It is split into sections to make it more manageable, but these can be ignored. There are a lot of case studies but you shouldn't need to know them all, but they are useful for referring to in answers. Generally, if you have a good idea of most of this powerpoint you should be ok!
