THE POWER OF OCEAN WAVES
PEGGY’S COVE, NS

EROSION AND DEPOSITION Ocean waves are continuously shaping coastlines by wearing down some areas such as headlands and building up others such as beaches in bays.
Beaches are some of the most attractive features in Atlantic Canada, and indeed around the world. Beaches are created by the work of waves. BEACHES
Waves crash against the shore with great force. They erode headlands, producing sediments such as sand which is then carried by the waves to the shore and deposited on a beach.

Not all beach sediment is sand. Hirtle’s Beach, NS
Not all beaches are beaches - Pebble Beach Golf Course, California
Let’s review where beach sand comes from. We’ll also take a look at some of the spectacular scenery waves carve out when they are producing beach sand.
