Coastal zones are dynamic environments in which landscapes develop by the interaction of wind, waves, currents and terrestrial & marine sediments.
Landforms originate due to energy and sediment.
Sediment plays a role in certain processes of erosion and cycles around a system to form landforms.
Process-response method: morphology of a coastal landform is a result of processes operating around a system.
Sediment budget: how much sediment is available, its source, its store and how it leaves a system.
