Transcript of Aquatic Landscapes...
The Great Barrier
The 12 Apostles
The famous 12 Apostles sit alongside the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, 225 kilometres west from Melbourne
Which landforms are within a landscape?
Landforms found within a coastal aquatic landscape are bays, cliffs, headlands, blowholes, sea caves, arches and stacks these are all formed by "erosion". This is the form of gradual natural destruction from either wind and/or water (weathering).
Australian coastal landscapes were inhabited by the indigenous Australians after they moved down from Asia.
Some of the first ancestors from Africa found their way to Australia while the continents were still combined.
From my findings, I have discovered the different aquatic coastal landscapes and the different landforms found within. I have also discovered how land can be changed by erosion or deposition and volcanic and tectonic impact. I have found who the early settlers of the Australian coasts were and information on the Great Barrier Reef, Tiwi in Kenya and the 12 Apostiles to help me gain a greater knowledge.
Tiwi - Kenya, Africa
Tiwi is located 17 kilometres south from Mombasa in Kenya, Africa in the Middle East. This coastal town lies over 4 degrees of latitude and 39 degrees of longitude.

The Great Barrier Reef is 2300 kilometres long, 60 to 250 kilometres in width and 344,400 km squared in area. It extends over 18 degrees latitude and 147 degrees of longitude and is 1,155 kilometres north of Bundaberg, south of the northern tip of Queensland, north eastern Australia.
The Great Barrier Reef is bigger than the great wall of China or Holland, Switzerland and the U.K. combined and about the same size as Japan or Italy. It is also the only living organism that can be seen from space.
As the world's largest complex coral reef ecosystem, the Great Barrier Reef consists of about 3000 coral reefs, 600 continental islands, 300 coral cays and 150 inshore mangrove islands.

The total coastline of Kenya is 1420 kilometres long and just off the coast is a 480 kilometres long coral reef, which protects it from harsh waves and provides the beach with clear waters and stunning views. Kenya's neighboring countries are Somalia, Tanzania and Ethiopia.
Due to the tropical climate of Africa, it is warmer in the winter months and has the most rainfall from April - May and the least rainfall from January - February.
Spits, sand dunes, lagoons, sand bars, sea islands are all landforms formed by "deposition". This is the form is repositioning eg. sand and it building up over time.
Waterfalls and lakes are in-land landforms that can be carried to the coast by rivers then out to sea through estuaries.
Most islands are formed by underground volcanic eruptions. Some reefs are formed by tectonic plates shifting over time and moving over "hotspots", which are pieces of mantle where heat is rising up to the surface as the plate moves creating reefs.

These picturesque limestone stacks sit on 38 degrees latitude and 143 degrees longitude. 20 million years ago they were connected to the mainland, 70 metre high vertical cliff line. This is an area known for fierce and rough seas. The rolling southern ocean has shown major erosion as there are only 8 stacks still standing today.
The headland transforms into a stack when cracks begin to appear and rocks start to erode, slowly a cave forms. Overtime, caves on either side of the headland erode to form an arch, soon the arch collapses leaving a stack.
As the erosion continues the original land is separated from the stack by many metres, this will continue until the stack collapses.
My project is on "Coastal Aquatic Landscapes". These are aquatic landscapes found within the coastal region.
A coastal aquatic landscape is usually associated with the ocean, and the landforms within.
We will be looking at how landscapes are changed or moved by erosion or deposition.
