Storyboard Text

  • That is a wave. It gets its energy from the wind.
  • What is that?
  • It is depositing sediment onto the beach.
  • What is it doing?
  • Where did it get the sediment?
  • It could be from anywhere because the water carries sediment through erosion. Also the sediment could be from a longshore drift.
  • When something interrupts a longshore drift, it can form a spit which is why the water is shallow in some places.
  • The beach is shrinking due to the waves picking up sediment and also the wind too. The process where wind picks up sediment is called deflation.
  • How did that get there?
  • The waves form a wave-cut cliff. Its where the waves erode the land so it looks like that. Sometimes there can be a headland on the top.
