Description:

Tides, currents, shelf slope, and geologic history all influence how coastline features are broken down or built up. However, more than any other factors, wave energy and coastal rock type influence the erosional processes that shape rocky coastlines. This interactive feature provides an introduction to the landforms and features which are characteristic of rocky coastlines, high-energy environments typically located on active margins with narrow continental shelves, near subduction zones.
