2 Environmental Impacts of Industry at the Coast StarterEnvironmental Impacts of Industry at the Coast
3 RiasDrowned or flooded river valleys formed at the end of the last ice age when the glaciers melted
4 How does this link to Southampton Water? Southampton Water is a Ria!It is part of the estuary of the Rivers Test andItchen that flow in to the Solent, a stretch ofwater near the Isle of Wight
