Catastrophic processes - a discussion of sedimentary beds

The new ELI today is 'If a sedimentary bed were laid down outside now – what would it be like? A discussion of beds and catastrophic processes'

A class discussion to develop the idea of a ‘bed’ of rock and how beds might be deposited catastrophically. The type of bed that could be deposited very much depends on the altitude and character of the area. Both likely and less likely scenarios are described in this ELI..
The activity can be used with any age of pupils or adults.
Many more Earthlearningideas in the Natural Hazards caregory can be found on our website.
