THE POWER OF OCEAN WAVES
PEGGY’S COVE, NS
CABOT PARK, PEI
DUNCAN’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.
Sandy beach on PEI
Cavendish Beach, PEI
Broad Cove Beach, Cape Breton Island
Beach in Nice, France
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.

Wave Erosion and Deposition
How Water Shapes our Landscapes and Shorelines Canyons Caves Direct Shorelines - Sandy vs. Stony Beaches Direct Shorelines - Mudflats Direct Shorelines.
The geological action of water III (La acción geológica del agua) Water shape the Earth´s surface through its movements in surface runoff, rivers, seas,
Shores and coastal processes. Goal To understand how coastal processes shape shores and coastlines and how these processes affect people.
Coastal Regions. Waves cause coastal features such as Arches, Caves and Inlets. Headlands (shorelines that project into the ocean) erode much faster compared.
OCEAN WAVES CHANGE COASTLINES.

WAVES. HOW DO WAVES FORM =The energy in waves come from wind that blows across the water’s Surface.
Coastlines: oceanic borders
WAVES and TIDES Section 2.3 page 64 WAVES Large ripples set in motion by steady winds Waves on the surface of water are the result of a transfer of energy.

Coastal Erosion. Forces That Shape The Earth The Earth is shaped by both internal and external processes Internally, tectonic processes form the lithosphere.
Coastal Landforms. - Cliffs and wave cut platforms - Beaches - Caves, arches, stacks and stumps - Headlands and bays - Spits - Summary.
WAVE EROSION. How do waves form? By wind that blows across the water’s surface. The wind causes water particles to move up and down as a wave goes by.
