Concordant Coast
Alternating hard/soft rocks are parallel to the coast
1 of 11
Swash
Waves break, water rushes up to beach due to wave energy
2 of 11
Backswash
Water running back down again under gravity
3 of 11
Constructive
Small, weak, low frequency, adds sand/sediment by deposition, swash greater then backswash because sediment is pushed up the beach
4 of 11
Destructive
Enough energy and power to carry out erosion, quickly, high frequency, backswash greater than swash because it carries sediment
5 of 11
Deposition
Sediments, soil and rocks are added to a landform or land mass
6 of 11
Longshore Drift
Back/swash zig-zag movement of sediment along the beach
7 of 11
Rock fall
Fragments of rock fall under gravity and collect at the base
8 of 11
Slumping
Cliff slides downwards, rain adds weight to the rocks
9 of 11
Fetch
The distance of sea over which winds blow and waves move towards the coastline.

Groundwater Flow
Once it has entered the soil, rainwater soaks into the rock below. It moves through pores and joints.
