        Sandy Coasts

        This interactive resource adapted from the National Park Service profiles sandy coast environments and describes various features of sandy beach environments. Waves play a major role in breaking down and building up coastline features. But other factors, including tides, currents, and sediment type, also determine how erosional and depositional processes shape coastlines.

        This media asset was adapted from Views of the National Parks: Coastal Geology Knowledge Center by the National Park Service.
