Introduction


This 56-minute video production traces coastline origins through the tectonic formation and subsequent erosion of the Appalachian Mountains; in the advance and retreat of glaciers; and in the ongoing effects of wind and water on sand.


Two distinctly different regions are presented: the dynamic barrier islands of the south, with their resulting sand beaches, salt marshes, and tidal flats; and the dramatic northern coast where steep cliffs, deep shoreline water, cold currents, and undersea banks combine to create a rich food supply that makes it possible for millions of nesting pelagic birds and large sea mammals to thrive there.
