Shapes and Formation

The border area of the ecosystems of land and sea, which influence each other, is referred to as coast.

Depending on their shapes, the coasts can be few to several kilometres wide and are constantly changed by surf, tides, sea level fluctuations and coastal currents in the zone of influence.

These processes have both destructive and constructive effects and result in different types of coasts.
