  • A Day At The Beach
    395 words
    A Day At The Beach I run down the boardwalk, not worrying about getting splinters in my tender feet. Every ten or fifteen feet I stop, sometimes to smell the salty sea air, but mostly to wait for my parents who plod along behind carrying chairs, coolers, and other beach paraphernalia. I yell back to them to hurry, and they reply that I can run ahead and find a good spot. I yelp with glee and run as fast as my little legs will carry me. I stop where the dark, brown of the boardwalk meets the ligh...

  • Large Amount Of Fine Sediment Between Stations
    1,550 words
    The characteristics of a sandy shore at Pallarenda beach, Townsville, North Queensland. Introduction: The sandy shores of beaches can be considered as a very harsh environment to live in (Ted Klenk, 1999). Survival in such a habitat requires an organism to withstand strong wave and current action, tidal rise and fall, unstable substrate, heavy predation and wide variations in salinity and temperature (The Otter Island Project). Any organism found in this type of harsh environment is specialized ...
  • Landslide Instability And Toe Sheet
    796 words
    The position of thrust sheets around the margins of landslide toe blocks, and their morphology and direction of thrusting, suggests that they were formed as a result of toe block pressing and movement in the surrounding sand. Toe-thrust sheets therefore can be considered as the morphological expression of ongoing instability at the landslide toe. The upthrust nature of these sheets at WestRunton suggests that rotation of toe blocks, generating forward movement of the surrounding loose beach sand...
  • Building Sand Castles
    582 words
    The waves are crashing. The sun is setting. People are laughing and embracing under the sunset. I feel the sand squish slowly through my toes as I gaily walk down the shoreline of the Outer Banks. My all time favorite place to be is the beach. The weather at the beach is the most quarreling of all places in the world. One minute you are relaxing lazily on the sandy seashore reading a most invigorating book. I sit engrossed and allow the foamy mist from the rampant ocean spray your face lightly a...
  • Top For The Flowing River Of Water
    1,478 words
    Sand Pebbles Always Make A Zuma Summer It was a sunny Friday afternoon when I decided to take my observations with me out into the world. I find that my imagination wanders off on its own and takes trips to the ocean without me so I figured my body had some catching up to do. With a snap of my fingers and a short ride through the canyon I found myself at my childhood playground, Zuma Beach. Without hesitation I laid my towel down upon the tiny grains and chips of rocks that the oceans might has ...
  • Water Level A Few Metres
    650 words
    Waterspouts When a tornado forms or passes over a water surface, it is termed a waterspout. Like tornadoes, they may assume many shapes and often occur in series or families. Measurements of their forward speeds are scarce, but estimates vary from a few kilometres an hour to as high as 64 to 80 kilometres per hour. Contrary to popular opinion, a waterspout does not "suck up" water to great heights, though it may lift the water level a few metres. The main visible cloud consists mostly of freshwa...

    Living on the beautiful island of Okinawa, there was a lot to experience at the White Beach. I remember the overwhelming site I behold with each visit.

Everything the beach had to offer I would take in. I look back now and miss the occasions spent in this sweet escape. Walking down to the beach, I pass by the high standing rocks; their face...
  • Cool Blue Waters Of The Bahamas

    Juanita Weems January 8, 2003 English I The Bahamas was a great place to visit. The cool waters make you feel like you are living in an island paradise.

  • Hermit Crab Shells
    821 words
    Before we began the initial beach walk, our instructor related some valuable facts about Ship Island. In 1969, Camille, a level five hurricane, swept through the island breaking it in two. This occurrence split the island in exactly the right spot, making the East Island lush with trees and shrubs, and Ship Island a place for students like us to enjoy a day at the beach. During the beach walk, the first thing one notices is the vast difference in sand color. It changes from a deep black to a typ...
  • Salt And Sugar In Isopropanol And Water
    404 words
    DAY 1 The first day there wasn't much time to do anything, but I filtered the yellow stuff out of the mixture. I am pretty sure that it was sulfur. It didn't have much of an odor, but the mixture itself smelled like rubbing alcohol, isopropanol. DAY 2 On this day, I did fractional distillation of the liquid (s). The graph is on the attached sheet. From doing the distillation I noticed two plateaus. The first plateau was at 80 C, and the second was at 100 C. I wasn't positive on this day what the...
