Shorelines are temporary geologic and topographic features. Explain this statement. (Hint: what are some of the forces affecting both the erosion and deposition of materials? What are some common temporary shoreline features - both erosional and depositional?) Shorelines change due to the addition and removal of sediment by various forces. Some forces are natural and some are the result of manmade constructions. The most common deposit and removal is done by waves which strike the shore and move down the shore in a kind of sweeping moving action. If this wave ebbing and flowing were the only contributor to the changes to the shore, it would be small and almost predictable in its regularity, however it would change the shape of the shoreline. Tides caused by the moon bring waves directly...
