1 of 14
what is the hypothesis?
the colour of the sand darkens as distance from the sea increases
2 of 14
Why was the area chosen?
it was near to my school and housing for our physical
3 of 14
Where is swanage?
swanage is south-west of london and on the south coast of england
4 of 14
what were the three methods used?
measuring the gradien, measure percentage ground cover, and height of vegetation
5 of 14
1. put a ranging pole in the sand 2. use a measuring tape and a kilnometer 3. measure the angle from the top of one pole to the other
6 of 14
why was the gradient collected in this way?
we used poles to make the reading more accurate and we used a 20m interval
7 of 14
how was the vegetation measured?
1. toss a quadrat onto the ground at 20m 2. estimate the percentage of vegetation
8 of 14
why was the vegetation measured in this way?
to make sure it was the same amount of space each time. 100 squares so a percentage could be found
9 of 14
how was the height of vegetation measured?
1. toss a quadrat onto the ground at 20m 2. measure the height of vegetation
10 of 14

to make sure it was the same amount of space each time
11 of 14
what is the conclusion?
that the hypothesis were correct
12 of 14
