Abstract

Two interacting factors have the greatest influence on the distribution of nearshore clastics. The first is a sediment distribution system which is primarily dependent on localized supply, via rockfall and intermittent streams. The second is the presence of physiographic barriers, principally faulted and eroded volcanic flows, which border on local coarse sediment delivery systems and isolate them from adjacent systems. -from Authors
