Activity 6: Researcher’s Problem
Directions. Suppose you are one of the leading researchers in your coastal
community. A land developer wants to build a mall that is 20 feet off the edge of the
coast. He presented that his mall will not be affected by coastal processes because
there were no records of any major damages done in your community. As a
researcher, what are the problems that the land developer might encounter if he
would continue to build his mall? Answer the question in the form of a letter.
I have carefully investigated your request and concluded that your assumption are built on a wrong basis: first, there were no records of any major damages in our community not because it is safe but because we did not have any buildings at that height of the coastline. Second, the investigators of rock properties on the area provided a report that the mechanical properties do not guarantee the safety of your possible future visitors.
