UK storms: Before and after 7 January 2014Last updated at 08:59 ET Stormy weather has wreaked havoc across the UK. A combination of high winds, rain and strong waves have battered the coastline and also caused flooding further inland. Here, a landmark rock arch in Porthcothan Bay in Cornwall, has been reduced to rubble. In Portland, Dorset, a rock stack off the coast, known locally as Pom Pom rock, has been washed away. Local historian Stuart Morris, who photographed the rock before and after its collapse, said: "You are talking about a natural stack that was hundreds of tonnes, totally demolished and broken to pieces by the storm." In Portreath, in Cornwall, a section of the finger pier and harbour wall has been damaged by the waves. Flooding in the Somerset Levels has left villages cut off and roads and buildings damaged. Aberystwyth promenade was evacuated again on Monday night as the coast was hit by an 'exceptional' wave swell.

Introduction to Solo Taxonomy by Mr McHugh on Prezi Coastal fieldwork methods – Where to start | Markhowell101's Blog Having run several coastal field trips now I thought I would compile a run down of all the techniques I have used with a bit of a review of their success, what groups they are good for, the likely results, how to present the data and how to go about doing them. When I first embarked on field trips I found limited information on the internet about specific methods that would work and how successful the students would be at each. It is my hope that someone finds this useful in putting together their own trip. I will add to this as time goes by and I try alternative methods. General Advice Pick the methods to suit you group – you will know what will work and what will notPick the methods that will give the right results to answer your question set. Beach profiling A great piece of fieldwork which always yields decent results in my experience. Pebble Analysis Field sketches A very straightforward way to get students to try to interpret features which you might see at the coast. Long Shore Drift

Hot Cities 1 - Lagos Immigration Congestion 1 - BBC Environmental Documentary Formby High School Geography Department Blog: Just for Y 11 Wednesdaygood luck tomorrow!!!!Mrs BlanchardTuesdayUse the information below to complete the past question .."What are the advantages and disadvantages of booking your own holiday ?" Advantages of planning and booking your own holiday There is freedom of choice - you can go wherever and whenever you want. You have much more flexibility (eg. if you booked with a travel agency you might have to go half-board at the hotel when you don't actually want to do this). You feel independent and there is a greater feeling of adventure. You can stay in more than one place during the course of your holiday. You can stay in more unconventional locations and won't be restricted to certain hotels. The holiday you like the look of at the travel agency might not fly from the nearest or most convenient airport. Disadvantages of planning and booking your own holiday If you book the parts of your holiday separately your insurance might not cover you for hotel costs if your flight is delayed or cancelled.

teachesliteracy: My generic #SOLOTaxonomy... Future of Climping’s sea defences unclear DIGGERS have been out on Climping beach, bolstering sea defences. But the future of the village’s seafront remains unclear ahead of a consultation later this year on what sort of sea defences the Environment Agency may be able to provide. Five years ago the Environment Agency (EA) shocked Climping residents by announcing draft plans to stop looking after the groynes and shingle bank protecting homes, businesses including the up-market Bailiffcrourt Hotel and farmland. The full impact of the strategy was due to come into force this year, with maintenance work ceasing as a policy of ‘do nothing’ was implemented by the EA. However, with bulldozers continuing to shore up the shingle on Climping beach in the wake of the storms and huge waves which have battered the coast this winter, the agency is maintaining the sea defences – for now. Climping Parish Council chairman Terry Hockley welcomed the recent work taking place on the sea defences and the plans to maintain them for the time being.
