TY Geography Field Study in Balscadden Bay, Howth

A group of TY students undertook a geographical investigation of the coastal processes at work in Balscadden Bay, Howth, Co. Dublin, earlier this year.

The students worked in two groups and studied wave frequency, wave direction, longshore drift, analysis of beach sediment etc. Students also observed and identified the various features formed by coastal erosion and deposition within this sheltered bay.

I hope TY students got a flavour of what’s to come in Leaving Certificate Geography from this module.
