Transgressive Barriers

Published:
January 01, 1984

Abstract

The first type of barrier island shoreline to be examined in this course is the transgressive type. Transgressive barrier islands can be observed in modern settings to migrate in a landward (up dip) direction as a result of eustatic sea level rise and wave-induced shoreline erosion. As a result, transgressive barrier shoreline sands have a low potential for preservation in the rock record.
