How do tsunamis affect erosion?

A tsunami is a large wave and acts upon the coastal margin in the same way that a wave would but at an escalated level of erosion. So, more material will be carried away by the wave and greater destruction will occur. The tsunami is a short-term phenomenon.


How is a coast formed?

coastal erosion is the wearing away of land or the removal beach or dune sediments by wave action, tidal currents , wave currents, or drainaige. On rocky coasts, coastal erosiom can results in an horrific / dramatic rock formations in areas where the coastline contains rock layer or frature plales with varieng resistance to erosion.

Why is the size of a wave important to coastal erosion?

Larger waves will pack more of a mechanical 'punch' than smaller waves, carrying and delivering more erosive energy.
