Description

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Field Trip Guidebooks Series, Volume 171.

The major objectives of this field trip are three-fold. First, you will be provided with an opportunity to examine in detail the morphology, distribution, lateral variability, and sedimentary characteristics of the spectrum of depositional environments found within a wave-dominated barrier island shoreline. This will be achieved primarily through field excursions and aerial overflights, and supplemented with information provided in lectures. An emphasis will be placed on the processes of deposition that control local patterns of Holocene sedimentation.
