With no ex-hurricane in sight, Year 13 Geographers headed north west to Magilligan Field Centre to complete AS Level fieldwork. The evening before fieldwork the students attended a skills and techniques lecture in QUB, though not before a quick pit stop at Belfast’s Continental Market!
Their fieldwork task involved collecting primary data from the Curly Burn river, a tributary of the river Roe. Students worked in pairs to measure river width, depth, discharge and load characteristics etc. Upon completion, they returned to the field centre for a well-deserved lunch, to collate their data and to complete their fieldwork report (a requirement for the AS3 examination).
A big thank you to the students who all worked enthusiastically!
