Longshore drift is the process by which sediment is transported along the coast. If incoming sediment supply is limited, for example due to coastal defences further up the coast, unimpeded longshore drift may contribute to coastal erosion over time. People may therefore use structures such as groynes to trap the sediment as it is being transported, to prevent it being washed away down the coast and reduce the amount of erosion that can take place

It sucks. I was on hols last week and a wave knocked my sunglasses off my head and into the water. I was looking all around for them then about 5 mins later realised I was looking in the wrong place because longshore drift.

I got a B in Geography and I reckon that just cost me a new pair of shades.
