Conceptual Model of Coarse Clastic Barrier Formation from Multiple Sediment Sources
Preview not available

Abstract

An exploratory approach to coarse clastic barrier development is based on a conceptual outline of shoreline processes around drumlin islands and likely interaction among them. The case study is the eroding drumlin archipelago at Clew Bay, western Ireland. Sediment released by an erosional front is forming beach ridges, spits, and transient linkages. Transfer of sediment is significant for barrier form and control of coastal change. Linking of adjacent drumlins affects dispersal of material within the barrier system.
