By: Krishona Foster

Waves

Beaches-Wear away land, change the shape of the land

Barrier Islands- Change the shape, deposit salt

Estuaries- High salinity and brings in sand, nutrients, and sediment

Tides

Estuaries- High tide- more salt, nutrients, and sea life

Inlets- The depth of the water changes (Deeper at high tide)

Beaches- Brings in shells, sediment, and sea life

Currents

Beaches- Move sediment

Inlets- Change their size and shape

Barrier Islands- Move sand from one end to the other
