Abstract

Shows that ice rafting of sand is an important mechanism influencing processes of coastal erosion and basin-deposition. Ice rafting may be partly responsible for net sediment progradation at this southeastern, lee shore during the last few thousand years, and adds coarse grains to basin muds. -from Authors
