    Thank you
    Submergence - Kingsbridge Estuary, Devon (example of a ria - drowned river valley)
    Emergence - Isle of Arran, western Scotland (examples of raised beaches and emergent landforms, e.g. King's Cave)
    Deposition - Humber Estuary, East Riding of Yorkshire (example of a spit - Spurn Head Spit)
    Erosion - Happisburgh, Norfolk (coast is being eroded rapidly)
