The several ecological factors discussed in the introduction were contrasted with the study site. The first site was analysed during high tide. Several aerate rocks occupied the rocky shore of the particular site. No presence of barnacles was noted.
There were several favourable abiotic and biotic factors within this microhabitat. These included tidal action, salinity, availability of nutrients and lack of diversity within the competition of space and lack of predators.
Despite these favourable characteristics, certain limiting factors prevented the organisms from inhabiting the site. Perhaps the most crucial limiting factor was the substrate. Since barnacles secrete an adhesive onto solid rock to withstand high velocity waves and remain sessile, a porous substrate disabled the organism to effectively attach itself to its substrate.
Another factor was the competition density that certain organisms posed. Periwinkles dominated the region increasing interspecific competition within the microhabitat.
Since the site was studied during high tide and was barely submerged, it indicated that perhaps the area was in the subtidal zone. Due to the barnacles’ constant need of submersion, this factor posed as another limiting factor.
Quadrant 1 was the study for a rock cave approximately 10 meters from the shore during low tide. The quadrant was located in an area just above a rock pool. The indication of a few dead barnacles’ shells within and around the…
Cast away on Koh Lipe
If you asked me what my favourite kind of accommodation is, I would probably say:
my own little bungalow with a bit of a hippie vibe, right on the beach with large windows to overlook the ocean, right next to a great restaurant.
A bonus would be a Spa, Yoga, Kayak, Snorkelling and Diving.
Well, guess where I am right now.
Castaway is a small resort on Koh Lipe, the southern most island of Thailand.
The bungalows are arranged around an adorable restaurant with a bar and a…

12.Explain sand movement along a beach.
There are two types of snat movement along the beach, perpendicualr and parallel. Perpendicular is when the sand is moving twoard the shoreline and away. In cases like swash,where the water rushes up the beach or the backwash, where water drains back into the ocean. These are cases in which the sand moves perpendicular. The other type is parallel. This is when there is a long shore current and the sand is moved up or down the coast.

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…
It is the most refreshing place you would ever want to visit. People there are so mellow the air is breezy and the sun shines so vividly. It’s way across Georgia but it’s still a part of the fifty states of America. I never been but I would love to see those hills, to take a trip down Melrose and enjoy a drink while cruising downtown. I would also love to walk the “walk of fame.” I would run into Marilyn Monroe and a bunch of characters posed to being these significant figures. All I see is…
