dc.description.abstractShoals along the Middle Atlantic Bight are divided into two major groups, linear shoals and arcuate shoals. Linear shoals include shoreface-connected shoals and isolated shoals. Arcuate shoals are either cape-associated or inlet associated. Excellent examples of linear and cape-associated shoals are found off of the coast of North Carolina. Three hypotheses for the origin of shoals are presented. All are based on a rise in sea level and the subsequent shoreface retreat. Modern hydraulics, in the form of waves and currents, appear to influence the formation of shoals.en_US
