Coastal Landscapes – The Harbour Of Rio De Janeiro

Using the harbour of Rio De Janeiro as a backdrop, these worksheets explain how the sea shapes coastal landscapes through weathering, erosion, transportation, and deposition. The four types of erosion and types of waves are then investigated.


The main task is a Decision Making Exercise: The Brazilian government is considering a proposal to relocate the marina outside of Rio De Janeiro’s Harbour to help preserve the struggling environment in the bay. The marina and its facilities are discussed, along with advantages and disadvantages of a move. The conflicts between local factions which may arise from the relocation are looked at alongside what other proposals could be put forward to help the area.

Willson Education

Hi, I'm a Geography teacher with experience educating at various levels across the south of England, ranging from mainstream schools, SEN and extra-curricular tuition. I also have experience in teaching Humanities, English and PSHE topics, as well as having worked as a cover supervisor and an exams invigilator. I've also had the chance whist studying and practising Geography to visit some fabulous locations around the world such as the Sahara Dessert, the American Heartland for my dissertation and Germany as part of my degree study programme. All of my experiences so far have added to my passion for the subject and I continue to produce and edit educational material today with a view to passing on my enthusiasm for the subject as well as inspiring new Geographers.
