Swash
Waves coming into the beach

Backwash
Waves coming back out from the beach
2 of 2252
Destructive waves
Wave that are mainly responsible for coastal erosion and taking away sediment.has a weak swash but a strong backwash
3 of 2252
Constructive waves
Responsible for depositing sediment in coastal areas has a strong swash ans a weak backwash
4 of 2252
Hydraulic Action
Air may become trapped in joints and cracks in rocks. When a wave breaks, the trapped air is compressed which weakens the rock and causes erosion.

Physical weathering (Freeze-thaw)
Water gets into cracks in rock and when the temperature falls below freezing the water expands and turns to ice. This causes pressure on the rock around it and fragments may fall off the rock.
230 of 2252
Chemical weathering
Rainwater containing weak acid can react with limestone and chalk rock and it causes rock to break up.

Biological weathering
Seeds fall into cracks in rock and grow forcing rock apart or burrowing animals break rocks up.

Mass movement

Soil creep

Reducing right angled cliffs to 45 degrees.
2164 of 2252
Abrasion (Corrasion)
Process of the coast being worn down by sediment carried by the waves being thrown against the rocks at a high velocity.
2165 of 2252
Attrition
Material carried by the waves bump into each other so they are broken down and smoothed.
2166 of 2252
Corrosion (Solution)
Chemical reaction of sea water. Acid in the salt slowly dissolves the rocks. Limestone and chalk are prone to this.
2167 of 2252
Deposition

2168 of 2252
Weathering
Break up of rocks due to exposure of the atmosphere
2169 of 2252
Physical weathering (Freeze-thaw)

2170 of 2252
Chemical weathering
Rainwater containing weak acid can react with rock and cause it to break up.
2171 of 2252
Biological weathering
Seed get in cracks in rock and force the rock apart when it grows or burrowing animals break up rocks.

Front

Responsible for depositing sediment in coastal areas has a strong swash ans a weak backwash

Back

Card 5

Front

Air may become trapped in joints and cracks in rocks. When a wave breaks, the trapped air is compressed which weakens the rock and causes erosion.
