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. Learn more about using, modifying, and sharing InTeGrate teaching materials.
Goals and Objectives
- Students will continue to develop the fundamental geospatial skills and concepts needed to assess the coastal processes and hazards discussed in this course.
- Students will link geologic time and current shoreline processes in order to explain the past and present evolution of coastline morphology.
By the end of this lesson,you should be able to:
- describe geologic and climatic hazards that shape coastal landscapes which include tropical, extratropical storms, as well as tsunamis;
- explain how geologic, biologic, and physical processes interact to produce diverse, dynamic coastal systems that can be severely impacted by geologic and climatic hazards;
- differentiate the spatial scales over which coastal processes (storms, tectonics, tsunamis) operate and impact landform development;
- analyze impacts on geomorphology resulting from case studies of actual coastal hazards (tropical and extratropical storms, tsunamis, etc.).
