Abstract

Deposition of sand in a lagoonal environment is mainly restricted to the inlets and to the borders. An irregular bottom topography, however, may give rise to abrasion due to wawe action. When the subsoil is sandy, this abrasion may result in a considerable supply of sand, which is redistributed throughout the lagoon. This phenomenon is observed in the sediments of the former Zuiderzee, where various types of sandy Pleistocene deposits (cover sands, river dunes and glacial till) have been abraded during the Holocene, when a lagoon covered that area.
