  • Barangaroo Headland Park And Reserve: Case Study

    The lower slopes of the park have more shade from the trees and hill above while the sandstones trap and absorb the heat from the sun. the top of the hills with is sparse amount of vegetation receive more sun and therefore more heat. the microclimate beneath the park creates a wind tunnel and is very cold as it doesn’t receive any sunlight. The microclimate closer to the roads and residential buildings also create more heat due to the urban heat island affect, whereby the heat from the sun is…

It is caused by wave induced currents and wind. This process occurs when the waves break at an angle to the shoreline therefore moving sand along the beach on a diagonal direction The waves hit the beach at an angle (swash) and then retreat (backwash) an angle If the wave is constructive, sediment will…
