Abstract

Climate determines coastal morphology through sea level and coastal processes, which are mainly steered by wind waves except in tidal inlets. They manage to erode coasts and transport their sediments if available. Coastal morphodynamic is so the result of its dialectic answers and it witness of wave direction and the whole climate through cyclone latitudes. This paper tries to approach the long term coastal processes and the trends of sedimentary coasts answer
