Biophysical interactions Geography excursion

Stage 6 geography excursion


Cronulla to Wanda beaches.


Students undertake a number of fieldwork activities at the dune systems of Bate Bay.

The activities  support the focus of the biophysical interactions component of the preliminary course, 'a geographical investigation of biophysical processes and how an understanding of these processes contributes to sustainable management'.

Students will:

  • differentiate between spatial and ecological dimensions in the study of geography
  • describe the interactions between the four components which define the biophysical environment
  • explain how specific environments function in terms of biophysical factors
  • select, organise and analyse relevant geographical information from a variety of sources
  • apply mathematical ideas and techniques to analyse geographical data.
