Longshore Drift- Process of Deposition and transportation.


The Sediement will be pushed up the beach in the diection of the wind and then pulled back down by the sea's backwash this effect will happen forever if a barrier is not built.

 Spit Formation-> A spit is formed when material is deposited.


1. Spits are formed where large amounts of sediment are transported by longshor drift (see above) and where the coastline suddenly changes diresction to leave a sheltered shallow area of water.

2. Depositation occurs in the water
