At the northern coast of the Sambian Peninsula longshore sediment drift proceeds in the form of short (up to 3-4 km) oppositely directed flows; zones of their divergence are located at the coastal protrusions (cusps), while the convergence takes place in heads of bights. Several stable lithodynamic cells have been identified; exchange of energy and sediments between them is hampered. The sediment transport within each cell is effected by longshore energetic currents, rip currents developing within convergence zones of the energetic currents, and by longshore gradient currents resulting from the water surface denivelations due to wave transformations over the sea floor elevations. - (L'Ed.)
