Fieldwork Round 2013 World Wise Quiz Fieldwork Round 2013-14 Supported by the Field Studies Council
Format There are 10 questions all somehow connected to fieldwork. There are 5 questions on fieldwork techniques/skills, and 5 questions about more general geographical knowledge related to fieldwork Answer each question in turn – consulting with other members of the team. GOOD LUCK!
Question 1 This piece of fieldwork equipment has to be held up in the air to take a reading, but what is it used to measure?
Question 2 These students are carrying out a study of a heather moorland. Name the piece of equipment (with the brown wooden frame in the photo above) they are using to sample the plants found here?
Question 3 The three picture clues above represent a type of place which attracts a lot of visitors and often forms the basis of a study on tourism or tourism impacts. What is this type of place called? http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/1578709 http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/2300234
Question 4 This equipment is commonly used for fieldwork whilst working in a river. The plastic oranges are used to measure the speed of the flow. Why might plastic oranges be better for this task than real oranges?
Question 5 Most of you will have or have used a smartphone, but you may not know that they can be very helpful when doing fieldwork. What is being displayed on the screen of this smartphone?
Question 6 Some students have visited a local river and taken this photograph. They have identified the features as a meander, but where across the meander is the water going to be flowing the fastest? http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/772113
