Transcript of HAINAN ISLAND
Average temperature = 28
Climate = warm and wet
Hainan is the smallest and southernmost province of the People's Rupublic of China. The main island of province, Hainan is located in the South China Sea. Hainan Island is part of Guangdong Province.
Most famous coast in Hainan Island is Sanya Beach. Clear sea and soft sands are located. Beacuse the sands are so soft, the waves sweep the sands up.
Impact of wave action is that the sands or sediments start to erode depending on the speed and power of the waves in the coast. Also the rocks would be moved which is called as long shore drift.
Impact of wave
Long Shore Drift
Long shore drift consists of the transportation of sediment like clay, silt, sand and shingle along a coast at an angle to the shoreline, which is dependent on prevailing wind direction, swash and backwash.
Sediment of rock type
Climate change and weather system can be effected on erosion process. Since there are strong winds and heavy rains in Hainan, there should be lots of erosion going on. Winds make the wave bigger and rains make the sands softer on the coastline.
They used coast for foods or workers in hotels. Most Hainanese people were originally fisherman. They worked as cooks, restaurateurs, coffee shop owners, sailors and hoteliers.
People and the coast
HAINAN ISLAND - ISO
Wind direction - West
The wind is blowing from West. The wind's speed or the direction depends the waves of the coast.
The sands are being carried by the winds and waves from West so the sands are moving towards the South East and they came from very end of the South. The sediment of rock type is granite because even with the gentle wave, it breaks down easily and becomes sands.
