    Spinifex Case Study

    • 306 Words
    • 2 Pages

    It was evident from the sand dunes on Main Beach, that the further you progressed inland, the vegetation became more dense and abundant. There was no plant species present up until the 40 m mark. This in theory was due to the fact that if vegetation were to occur at the beginning of the transect line, they would be impacted by the strong wave action, which contains high volumes of salinity in it, which then affects the nutrients in the sand making it inefficient for plant growth. The spinifex…

    Erosion is the geological process in which Earth's surface is worn down by natural forces like running water, wind, glaciers and waves. Erosion is a key factor in the formation of beaches because erosion moves sediment (sand) from one location to another. There are three major types of coastal erosion; hydraulic action, corrosion and corrosion. Hydraulic action is when waves crashing against a headland causes erosion. Waves enter cracks in the rock and air is compressed into the crack by the…

    Kirra Beach Case Study

    • 285 Words
    • 2 Pages

    By increasing the length of the jetty at Kirra Point, stops longshore which decreases sand on Kirra. The extension of 30m onto the groyne improves and brings back the surf-break which was destroyed when they initially put the groynes at Kirra Point. By removing the dunes you are taking away the volume of sand on the beach, it increases the risk of erosion when storms occur. It also protects coastal resources from damage of large tides which wash away the sand dunes. Sand Dunes are there to…

    Natural forces and the development boom are having serious implications on the landscape, flora and fauna of the Big Bonanza Coast. Erosion is when soil is broken down by natural forces over time and erosion usually happens in three actions - soil detachment, movement and disposition. Water erosion effects the Big Bonanza Coast the most. When it rains or water hits the beach or dunes, the drops break down the soil. The bigger the storm, the larger the erosion potential. The loss of sand on the…
