What evidence do you see for             For additional
depositional processes? For erosional    information:
processes?

How do you think humans interfere with

these processes?
What evidence do you see for wind and     n   Ripple Marks

What kind of dynamics do you see          n   Barrier Islands
operating in these environments (e.g.,    n   Floods
storms vs. normal cycles, etc.)? How
would you define a “normal” period?       n   Coasts
