By identifying the sediment size at each station allows the amount of long shore drift happening at each stage of the beach to be assessed and evaluated. If the size of the rocks decrease in size closer to the harbour arm, it will help prove my hypothesis
The wildfire fighting agency, Cal Fire, has reported minor injuries and notes that most of the fires are over 60% contained. In some cases, the land damage has been substantial. Fires in San Bernardino and Alpine counties have burned almost 50,000 acres. Rocky Fire, one of the largest wildfires, has destroyed three homes and led to a mandatory evacuation order for about 500 homes. The fire's location in steep terrain is making work
First Coast, also known as Northeast Florida, is located on the Atlantic coast, comprising of five counties surrounding Jacksonville: Duval, Baker, Clay, Nassau and St. Johns. It extends past the southern end of Anastasia Island to Marineland. The name “First Coast” originally appeared in a marketing campaign in the 1980s, and has its origins as the first area of Florida to be colonized by Europeans. Ponce De Leon is believed to have landed in the First Coast region during the early 1500s on his first expedition. In the 1560s, the French established the colony of Fort Caroline in what is today Jacksonville. First Coast is not only known for its historical significance, but it is also the state’s best-kept secret as vacationers paradise, that
Background. On June 12, 2011 in Sierra Vista, Arizona – a city near the Mexican border, a suspected human-caused fire was started within the Coronado National Monument Park, along the southern tip of the Huachuca Mountains in Southern Arizona and quickly shot through the canyons south of the city of Sierra Vista. Over the course of 14 days, the wildfire burned to some extent 100% of the park’s acreage; destroyed a total of 62 homes, 18 outbuildings and 4 businesses (Youberg & Pearthree, 2011) and mandatory evacuations were in effect due to the fires moving quickly towards the outskirts along with the danger of the smoke that blanketed the town. The fire was wind-driven spread and was aided by high temperatures and low humidity.

Wildfires have always been a part of our lives on this rock we call Earth. Over the years we have developed tried and true ways to battle and extinguish them, but in the recent past it has become more and more of a problem considering their increase in size and weather patterns. These factors have been termed with a phase every American knows all too well, “Global Warming!” The western half of the United States has had to deal with these fires more than any other area of the country. Of the western half, the state of Colorado has seen its share of some of the worst wildfires. Since the 1970 's the normal number of flames in excess of 1,000 sections of land every year has almost quadrupled in Arizona and Idaho, and has multiplied in
A region is an area that has common features. Las Vegas is in the State of Nevada and the North America continent. Nevada can be divided into 4 land regions: the Columbia Plateau, the Sierra Nevada, The Mojave desert, and the Basin and Range region. It is situated in a mountainous region that has massive semiarid grasslands and alkali deserts. It is in the Western, Mountain West, and Southwestern districts of the U.S. The large cities located in the basins are Reno and Carson. However, Elko, Elko, Fallon, and some other cities are located there. The Mojave Desert’s region includes Vegas, Henderson, and Boulder City. Its region type is a state.
The Cedar Fire (2003) was one of the largest and deadliest wildland fires in California history burning nearly 300,000 acres in San Diego County and killing 15, including 1 firefighter. A lost hiker accidently set this fire from survival methods attempted with a flare.

Since 1996, the state of California, and by default, the city of Desert Hot Springs, have allowed the use of medical marijuana. Under proposition 215, any individual with a prescription could legally possess and use cannabis. And this was the case until recently, when a chain of events led to the legalization of consumption for non-medical reasons in California. Proposition 64 legalizes the private use of marijuana as of January 1st, 2018. However, this decision appears to have been made prematurely as the effects of such an abrupt decision are beginning to manifest themselves. Aside from the palpable consequences of marijuana consumption, including sluggishness and impaired judgement, there are far more serious unintended consequences impacting
The California wildfires and in general any wildfires have and still is affecting everyone including the farmers from the recent outbreak of a California Wildfire that commenced in an area near Los Angeles. The wild fires has caused disasters and has devastated many families. The residents had to evacuate because his or her’s home were in danger of becoming destroyed by the fire in which tragically many were destroyed. Being so the farmers had to evacuate the farm, many of the families that had to evacuate their farm were heartbroken because the hard work that was put in to the crops were going to become ashes. For a majority of the farmers the crops were not the only thing that he or she was going to leave behind, the other belonging that was going to be left behind was the precious farm animals, many news reports denoted the farmers letting go of their animals. The California wildfire was heard around the world. Being so more people became aware of the disasters a wildfire can cause, and by this farmers take an advantage because with more people knowing that the wildfires can destroy everything it reaches, there is going to be more caution when using fire. By this many homes and farms are going to be saved in the future. But of course the greatest advantage a farmer has when facing a wildfire is the support of the
Historically, misconceptions about coastal and other aquatic adaptations are persistent in archaeology due to: (1) long-standing ideas that aquatic resources are marginal foods, (2) unclear definitions of what constitutes aquatic versus terrestrial resources, (3) changing sea levels, erosion, and the destruction of coastal archaeological sites, (4) differential preservation, recovery, and reporting of aquatic remains, and (5) holdovers from the “Man the Hunter” paradigm, which tend to overemphasize terrestrial hunting activities (Erlandson 2001). Consequently, coastal and other aquatic adaptations are poorly documented worldwide; the economic output of aquatic environments, and the nature of societies inhabiting them, continues to be debated
The Holderness Coastline The infamous Holderness Coastline is located on the East coast of Yorkshire, stretching from Flamborough Head to Spurn Point. In the last 2000 years the coastline has retreated by almost 400m and since Roman times over 28 villages have disappeared into the sea between Bridlington and Spurn Head. About a million years ago the Yorkshire coastline was a line of chalk cliffs almost 32km west of where it now is. During the Ice Age deposits of soft boulder clay were built up against these cliffs to form the new coastline.
