Analysis and conclusion
In this section I will be describing what my data shows for each of the techniques I used at Overstrand.
* Groyne measurements:
Groyne measurement shows the height and how much sediment is being built up on either side of the Groyne. This allowed me to find out whether long shore drift was taking place.
From looking at my graph I found out that there was more build up of beach sediment on the west than the east of the groyne. This was the sort of graph I wanted, where one was higher than the other.
LSD is the transportation of beach sediment of beach sediment along the shore in a zigzag movement.
Beach sediment splits as it moves on shore at Sheringham. Some of the sediment and water moves westwards towards Cley, whilst the other half moves towards Overstrand.
On the coast, if there is any human implication, this will therefore disrupt the great level movement of beach sediment along the coast.
A) Large groynes at Cromer (coastal management), very antagonistic. They capture movement of beach (buffer zone) therefore a decrease in
