- Choose the best example of a spit you have found and capture an image of it.
- Paste the image into a document and add some additional research about the spit you have chosen.
- Can you determine the direction of longshore drift for the spit you have chosen?
Locate 10 of the spits from this list onto a Google Map. For each example explain the direction of longshore drift, the source of the sediment and any human uses of the spit.
