Abstract

In an attempt to assess the influence of high wave energy on the coast of Central Chile, measurements have been made relating the area of drainage basins to the extent of sandy coastline, area of beaches and area of dunes. Analysis of granulometry and mineralogy of beaches and dunes, in relation to fluvial sands, supports the conclusion that the coastal sand deposits of Central Chile have been much mixed, and distributed alongshore, by strong wave energy and there is a possibility that the sand from the sea floor has been incorporated.
