Coastal Processes and Landforms

Synopsis
Why do novice surfers prefer constructive waves? What happens when you take away a village’s natural sea defences? Filmed along the Dorset coastline, this resource provides up-to-date explanations and examples of the processes and landforms that shape coastal environments, including the role of littoral cells and sediment movement. The programme brings the subject alive through interviews with surfers, coastal surveyors and environmentalists. Illustrated landforms include: Lulworth Cove, Old Harry, Studland Bay, Sandbanks, Slapton Ley, Hallsands and Portland Bill.
