Abstract

A comparative study on sand coasts of Bohai Sea and Mauritania along Atlantic Ocean shows that the dune coast might be an effective example of land-sea interaction, and gives insight on the formative mechanism of this kind of coast. Under Arctic climate influence during the New Glacial lower stand of sea level, large areas of sandy coast were exposed to frequent cyclonic storms. The strengthened winds shifted large volumes of sand gradually to accumulate in huge sand dunes in large scale of coast area
