1 Orthogonal you drew is straight .if you were to draw other other orthogonals on the same map panel, they would be oriented "parallel" to the orthagonal you drew.
2 The rightpanel of figure 1 shows wave crests approaching show from a differenrt obligue angles. With you pencil, continue the orthogonal started on the wave crest in the lower right to the shore .this orthogonal curves toward the show
3 The longshore current in the left panel flows from left to right. Draw arrows in the two panels representing the direction of the respective longsgore currents.

5 Generally, patterns of orthogonals indicate that waves crests approaching a shoreline at oblique angles are refracted or bent toward the shoreline
6 Depicts water waves approaching an embay coastline. The pattern of wave crests illustrates the effect of an irregular coast on approaching waves. Arrows depicting segments of orthogonals are drawn along the deep water wave crest.complete the drawing of the orthogonals to the shore. Your analysis shows that orthogonals of wave crests approaching a headland refract toward the headland, thereby concentrating wave energy.
7 The pattern of orthogonals you drew centered on the bay area indicates that the orthogonals refract away from the midpoint of the bay shore thereby spreading out wave energy.
8 Generalizing converging orthogonals indicate the concentration of wave energy.
9 On the other hand, orthogonals denote the dispersal or spreading out of wave energy when diverging . where wave energy is concentrated, erosion can be expected e.g undercutting of seaside cliffs. Where wave energy is dissipated its carrying capacity for sediment is reduced and particles settle out of suspension.
10 Consequently, headlands are places of erosion
Bays are places of sediment deposition
Based on different in width of the barrier island beach on either side of tidal inlets and knowing that beach sediments accumulate on the sides of jetties facing the oncoming longshore current and erode on the down current sides, prevailing direction of littoral drift is from southwest to northeast
Tides and storm surge are likely to affect the water level in the lagoon
Beaches are generally absent along the northern coast of the isle of jersey. This is the side of the island facing the english channel.
Along the southern and western coasts, beaches are widest along the broad concave embayments and generally absent along headlands.
These observations are not consistent with the expected pattern of wave energy distribution due to wave reflaction
In tim, wave action will cause the southern and western coastline of the isle of jersey...
