Geography Fieldwork

As part of their TY Geography programme each TY class undertakes a study of coastal processes in Liscannor Bay, Co. Clare. This is carried out under the direction of staff from the Burren Outdoor Education Centre with the assistance of our TY Geography Teaching Team.

Our TY students will undertake this practical fieldwork on 24, 25 & 26 March 2023.

Students will be required:

To examine the effects of coastal erosion

To determine the direction of longshore drift and measure wind and wave activity today.

To examine how pebbles are deposited on a beach

To observe human interaction with coastal erosion

The fieldwork involves the students in active participation in relevant measurement, observations and recording; as well as advice on follow up work and report presentation.
