Barrier Beach

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Where the sea bottom has a very gentle slope, the waves break at some distance from the shore and the sand they carry is deposited, forming a barrier beach (B) along the line of greatest disturbance. The strip of water inclosed between the land and the barrier beach is called a lagoon (L).” -Dryer, 1901
