Shoreline Erosion and Deposition


Wave energy

Wave Energy

  • Wind makes ripples which make waves.

  • The bigger the wave the more dramatic a shore erodes.

  • When a wave hits a rock several times in a row, it keeps breaking down until it is sand.

  • When a wave breaks, the bottom of the wave drags, and erodes the bottom of the ocean.


Wave erosion

Wave Erosion

  • Waves in the ocean and other large bodies of water produce coastal erosions.

  • Large storm waves can produce 2000 pounds of pressure per square ft.

  • The pure energy of waves along with the chemicals content of the water is what erodes the coastline.


Wave deposits

Wave Deposits

  • Waves carry materials like sand, rock fragments, dead coral, and shells.

  • Some of these materials wash up on shore where it forms a beach.
