Strand Line Observations for High School Students: An Exercise in the Marine Environment.
Schlenker, Richard M.
As tides ebb and flood, quantities of diving, dying, and dead materials are moved from place to place. Many of these materials are stranded at the littoral fringe as the tide changes from flood to ebb. This area of stranded material, sometimes a belt as much as a meter wide, is appropriately known as the strand line. In these activities, students investigate a marine strand line before and after storms, make collections, analyze collections, and draw conclusions. Completion of the unit requires two field trips.
