    Oh you are on about longshore drift, you said types so I assumed you were referring to traction/saltation/suspension/solution

    Yes but surely there would be sediment in the sea from erosion of the cliffs, I don't know lol, he said types lol so I wasn't sure what he meant

    This question came up Jan '10.

    Describe processes of transportation on a beach. [7]

    The mark scheme says :

    The main process is likely to refer to longshore drift. There should be
    reference to the two components of swash and backwash and how the
    angle of approach determines movement along the beach. The process
    is responsible for the shifting of material along the beach. There should
    be reference to processes such as saltation, traction and suspension.
    Reference to transportation by wind.

    Hope that helps

    Yep they do occur - There should

    Hey, I'm doing my Geog 1 exam this Tuesday, first time
    I'm doing the topics Rivers, Coasts, Population and Food Supply. Is anyone else doing Food Supply? How are you finding it? It doesn't seem like a common choice :/ I find Food Supply hardest, the questions are very broad and could cover any part of the specification. You really have to know your stuff to get good marks
    It bugs me a little how they literally only test a few words from the specification when you have to learn all of it but, hey, what can you do? :L xD
    I think the 15 markers will be Rivers: Engineering, Coasts: Coastal Features/ Coastal Erosion, Population: prayingitllbeDTM but I think settlements and Food: geopolitics and distribution/ schemes to increase production
    Good Luck everyone !

    Berms are the ridges you see at high tide marks, cusps are crescent shaped indentations you get during backwash - nobody really knows how they are formed
    (Original post by Beni24)
    If you've got the CGP book, it's mentioned in there on page 23

    Berms are ridges of sand and pebbles found at high tide marks, they're formed by deposition of coarse material at the limit of the swash.

    Runnels are grooves in the sand running parallel to the shore. They're formed by backwash draining to the sea

    Cusps are cresent-shapes indentations that form on beaches of mixed sand and shingle. It's not know exactly how they form, but they develop in areas where waves break parallel to the beach and where there's large tidal rang ( difference in height between high and low tides)
    Thank you both! Helped a lot.
