Landforms of Littoral Drift

Main objective of this lecture is to present on Landforms of Littoral Drift. Onshore offshore drift and longshore drift deposit and shape debris to produce a variety of landforms. A spit is an elongated deposit that extends from the land edge out to sea. It may be shaped to produce a distinctly curved end, as in Cape Cod. Another landform that attaches an island to the mainland is known as a tombolo, while deposits may also accumulate to create barriers such as a bay barrier.
