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.
