        National Park Service | Rocky Coasts

        Tides, currents, shelf slope, and geologic history all influence how coastline features are broken down or built up. More than any other factors, wave energy and coastal rock type influence the erosion processes that shape rocky coastlines. In this interactive resource adapted from the National Park Service, learn about sea stacks, fjords, and other features that characterize rocky coasts in some of America's national parks.
