examples of subaerial processes
weathering, runoff,mass movemnt ( they occur on the land)
1 of 15
examples of marine processes
erosion, transportaion (occur in the sea)
2 of 15
what are the factors affecting distribution of slat marshes
weather:storms can erode marsh, sediment supply:can enhance or diminish available slit , human: commercial, industrial+recreational activity can damage marsh, sea level rise: rises can upset equilibrium,climate: affect species type, river regime
3 of 15
what features do submergent coastlines have
rias, fjords and dalmatian coast
4 of 15
what are the features of emergent coastlines
castal plains, relict cliffs and raised beaches/ wave cut platform

what is positive feedback
where the effects of an action are amplified or multiplied by subsequent knock on secondary effects

what is sediment budget
a balance between sediment being added and removed form the coastal system
9 of 15
what is the purpose of sub cell
to allow closer study and management

what is an SMP
a largecreport used to asses the risk associated with coastal processes. plans are either short term(0-20), ,medium term (20-50), or long term (50-100), they address risk in a sustainable way

what is the ICZM
the coordination of different parties that effect a coastal zone in areas such as shipping, agriculture, industry +development of industry, created by the UN
