HideShow resource information
Traction
Large particles like boulders are pushed along the sea bed by the force of the water
1 of 9
Suspension
Small particles like silt and clay are carried along by water
2 of 9
Saltation
Pebble sized Particles are bounced along the sea bed by the force of water
3 of 9
Solution
Soluble materials dissolve in the water and are carried along
4 of 9
Deposition
material being carried by water is dropped on the coast,low energy waves, increased when (lots of erosion,lots of transportation),mamount of deposition ids l;arger than the amount of erosion
5 of 9
Constructive waves
low and long, low frequency of 6-8 per minute,swash is morepowerful and carries the material up the coach and the backwash is weaker and doesnt take a lot of material down the beach.
6 of 9

found between the high water mark and the low water mark, formred by constructive waves.
7 of 9
