Which of the following is not a human activity that affects coastal landscapes?
True or false? Coastal quarries expose large areas of rock, making them more vulnerable to chemical weathering and erosion.
True or false? The extraction of gravel from beaches for use in the construction industry has increased the risk of erosion as there is less material to protect the cliffs.
True or false? Industrial growth at ports supports the protection of salt marshes.
Industrial growth at ports has increased pressure to build on salt marshes, leaving the land more vulnerable to erosion.
True or false? Coastal settlements have more coastal defences which means the land is better protected against erosion.
True or false? Building on coastal lowlands can restrict the sediment supply to beaches making them narrower and more susceptible to erosion.
True or false? Farming on land near to the coast can increase weathering and erosion.
Clearing vegetation on land on the coast exposes soil and underlying rock to weathering and erosion.
True or false? Agricultural land has a low economic value so it is often left unprotected and vulnerable to erosion.
