What is the difference between sediment cells and littoral cells?I'm under the impression that sediment cells are closed systems that cover a large area of the coast and contain many smaller cells (littoral cells) which are open systems and cover a much smaller area of the coast such as a bay. The littoral cells pass and receive sediment and energy between other close by littoral cells but no material ever leaves the large sediment cell they're all contained in. Is this right? Because some sites are telling me that sediment cells and littoral cells are the same thing.Thanks

As far as I’m aware you’re correct in what you’re saying!
