Coastal Deposition

Coastal deposition forms part of the coastal processes by delivering the collected material at a specific point. The process of collection and depositing at another space presents a complex system. Different facets influence the manner coastal deposition happens. These aspects include the manner waves fight against gravity and the use of friction to transport material. … Read more

Coastal Erosion

One of the key components of the coastal processes refers to coastal erosion. Coastal erosion drastically allows for the removal of material at our beach areas. The material includes different rocks, particles or limestones, for example. These molecules or sediment picked-up by the ocean experience transportation to other coastal areas. The key challenge we face … Read more

Coastal Transportation

Coastal transport forms part of the coastal processes approach. These coastal processes aim to build-up or break down the coastal zones. Subsequently, with the constant movement of waves, diverse materials become transported alongside significant distances. These distances can include thousands of kilometres. The movement of the different materials forms part of a balancing effect. The … Read more

Waves

In reality, one may see the wave-like water disturbance because of the energy levels carried in the body. The energy existing in the water creates the ability to transform the water shapes into ripples, for example. Waves consist of different physical attributes and stay vulnerable to occurrences of different weather patterns.  Waves comprise different characters … Read more

Coastal Landscapes

Summary Coastal landscapes lie between the sea and the mainland Coasts are divided into four types Rias, high coasts with cliffs, low coasts and lagoons are typical of coastal landscapes Coastal management is an important aspect of coastal landscapes The Holderness coastline has faced various challenges such as increased rate of erosion over the years … Read more
