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.

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
