Fieldwork: Improving Reliability

In order to improve the overall reliability of our results, reduce the impact of anomalies and strengthen our conclusions we could have:

  1. Repeat our experiments at another time - the environment changes throughout the year
  2. Other samples would mean a more valid conclusion
  3. We could have visited other sand dunes to compare - otherwise our conclusions are just about Studland Bay Sand Dunes and they might be anomalous
  4. Do more transects or spread them further apart to come to genuine conclusions about the sand dunes
Braunton Burrows, Devon:

would reduce the impact of anomalies and increase our results validity.
