imagesFIGURE 17.10 Wave refraction causes wave energy to be concentrated on headlands and dispersed in embayments, causing erosion of headlands and deposition in embayments.

How will the shape of this coastline change over a long period of time?

To determine

The way in which the shape of the coastline changes over a long period of time.

Explanation

Ocean waves are the energy waves that are traveling along the interface between ocean and atmosphere. Wind is the major source of energy which shapes up and modifies the shorelines.

The term wave refraction is used for the bending of waves. The shore is oriented parallel to the ocean waves. Initially, most of the waves move toward the shore at an angle. When they reach the sloppy bottom, they bend and become parallel to the shore...
