Geography Field Trip 2011

Geography Field TripThis year AS geographers at Brampton College took part in three exciting days of fieldwork and research. In February ‘Extreme Weather’ investigations were undertaken at Epping Forest Field Centre. This involved wading in Loughton Brook to gather cross profile measurements, as well as a slippery storm discharge experiment. A second day at the same venue focused on ‘Rebranding Places’. This time quantitative and qualitative data were collected to assess the branding of Epping Forest. Lots of fun was had with quadrats! The third and final day considered rebranding in East London. The highlight was observing the vast 2012 Olympic Site from the top of Holden Point.
