Introduction

Aims and Hypothesis I am going to investigate if Lulworth Cove needs to be managed or if it would remain, preserved in the future without any need for management. I am going to investigate this by collecting my data and finding out and writing up all of my results. I am also going to use useful information to help me to write this coursework and prove whether this hypothesis is true or not. Introduction I am going to Lulworth Cove to investigate the effect the Cove have on the area, specifically I will be looking at footpath erosion and the general environmental quality of different sites within the area. As a coastal area it is also subject to erosion by the sea so we will be looking at how the beach is affected by wave or if it would remain preserved in the future without any need for management. Lulworth Cove is situated at the coastline which is 5 miles long stretching from White Nothe to Warbarrow bay. It is located along the 95-mile coastline, which makes up Dorset and east Devon's World Heritage site. Rangers managed the whole area. It was formed 10,000 years ago by the power of the sea and a river. It continues to change as the narrow entrance is made from Portland stone but the rocks behind are softer (Purbeck, Wealdon, Greensand and chalk) ...read more.

Conclusion

Therefore people visits Lulworth cove again and many people visit Lulworth. People think that Lulworth has beautiful scenery. Therefore Lulworth cove needs maintenance for the tourists. Overall conclusion According to rangers talk Lulworth has many different designations. 1. World heritage site for all mankind 2. Area of outstanding natural beauty 3. Heritage coastline 4. Site of special scientific interest 5. Village conservation area 6. Peaceful, quite and beautiful People continuously visit Lulworth cove and rangers are maintaining the area to protect habitats and reduce erosions. One of the maintenance is stone pitching. From this coursework I found out that Lulworth cove needs continuous maintaining. Therefore I reject the hypothesis. Evaluation To investigate the given hypothesis, I used method of measuring, questionnaires and EIA. Some of the results obtained are reliable. Questionnaire can have possibility of biased opinions; methods can have human error and Environmental impact Survey can also have biased opinions. If I do this coursework again next time I will make sure all my results obtained are reliable. To do this I will ask more random people for the questionnaire; I will repeat measurements and take average to make sure the error is smaller; I will compare my EIA result with my friend to make sure there is no biased opinion by myself. In my conclusion I have rejected my hypothesis, through my project I can put forward my new hypothesis. "Lulworth Cove does need to be managed as it remains affected by physical and human geographical processes." Geography Coursework Praise Kim 10-B Mr. Hawkins ...read more.
