Erosional and Depositional landforms by Mind Map: Erosional and Depositional landforms

1. Tombolos are extensions of the coastline

2. Spits are long narrow ridges of sand

3. Less resistant rocks which curve inwards are Bays

4. Headlands formed from more resisting rocks

5. Longshore currents deposit materials on the coast

6. Accumulation of materials over time form beaches

7. Deposition is when materials are deposited on the coast

8. Cuts the rock and forms a cave

9. Cliffs formed when rocky coasts get repeatedly washed by waves

10. Removal of materials from the coasts by high energy waves

11. Erosion

12. Shore platforms formed when waves erode the cliffs

13. Beaches formed when sediments deposit along the coast
