This animated Powerpoint offers background to accompany our in-class Geography 101 discussion of several key concepts from Ch. 13, "Oceans, Coastal Processes, and Landforms." In contrast to the last couple weeks' discussions on tectonic forces/diastrophism, the focus here is on erosion/gradational forces.
