For the InstructorThese student materials complement the Coastal Processes, Hazards and Society Instructor Materials. If you would like your students to have access to the student materials, we suggest you either point them at the Student Version which omits the framing pages with information designed for faculty (and this box). Or you can download these pages in several formats that you can include in your course website or local Learning Managment System.

Goals and Objectives
- Students will build upon the material of Module 2 and be able to recognize that there are discrete, unique coastal systems such as rocky coasts, coral coasts, deltas, barrier islands, and marshlands within regional-scale coastal zones.
- Students will develop an understanding for what processes are operative within the range of coastal systems and how these processes shape the coastal systems.
- Students will appreciate that coastal systems evolve differently in response to fair-weather conditions or storm conditions.
By the end of this lesson you should be able to:
- Identify and describe the different types of coastal systems that exist and explain the morphological differences between these types of coastal systems.
- Use and manipulate field-gathered elevation data within Excel to create cross-sectional profile plots of a barrier island system.
- Evaluate the time series of barrier island cross sections to assess how storm processes affect a barrier island system relative to processes during fair weather conditions.
