Erosional and Depositional Landforms

Erosional and Depositional landforms
Tombolos are extensions of the coastline
Removal of materials from the coasts by high energy waves
Shore platforms formed when waves erode the cliffs
Erosion
Cliffs formed when rocky coasts get repeatedly washed by waves
Cuts the rock and forms a cave
Headlands formed from more resisting rocks
Less resistant rocks which curve inwards are Bays
Deposition is when materials are deposited on the coast
Longshore currents deposit materials on the coast
Beaches formed when sediments deposit along the coast
Accumulation of materials over time form beaches
Spits are long narrow ridges of sand
