Beach ridges - definitions and significance

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Numerous AA. utilized the term beach ridge for active and relict, usually wave-built supratidal and /or intertidal forms. The term was applied also to submerged, landward-shifting, eventually stranded bars. A consistent redefinition of the term is highly desirable. Beach ridges should include all relict strandplain ridges, whether dominated by wave/swash-built or by eolian lithosomes. All active ridge-like shore features, regardless of dimensions, morphology, and origin are excluded. This paper based on the North American, Australian, New Zealand and other international literature, utilizes field work in the northern Gulf of Mexico
