Longshore Drift

This site has taught me a lot since it started. Mainly its the 'posters' who do it. Recentley John Mason posted about the effects of the storms on 'his' beaches, so I wrote and asked about how this happened and if it was able to reinstate it self. He mentioned 'Longshore Drift'. I had heard about it but memory is failing! SO ... I googled it and found a great explanation, and for the Barmouth area.

Great stuff ..... I just wanted to share it with you lot!! Sorry to you cleverer ones who already knew.
How many 'favourite' marks are actually on 'spits'?

i've watched it on our local beaches for years.

strong s/e winds will take sand from the beaches, the next set of strong northerlies, puts it back.
