Coastal Processes
      1. Erosion
        1. The wearing away of the land by an agent of erosion.
        2. Transportation
          1. Erosion
            1. The wearing away of the land by an agent of erosion.
              1. Attrition
              2. Deposition
                1. The laying down of material that has been transported by the sea
                2. Deposition
                  1. The laying down of material that has been transported (by the sea).
                  2. Erosion
                    1. The wearing away of the land by an agent of erosion.
                      1. Attrition
                      2. Transportation
                        1. The removal of weathered material and subsequent movement.
                          1. Saltation
                            1. Solution
                              1. Minerals are dissolved in sea water and carried in solution. The load is not visible. Load can come from cliffs made from chalk or limestone, and calcium carbonate is carried along in solution.
                              2. Suspension
                                1. Small particles are carried in water, eg silts and clays, which can make the water look cloudy. Currents pick up large amounts of sediment in suspension during a storm, when strong winds generate high energy waves.
