Top best answers to the question «Is wave energy concentrated on bays and headlands»

Wave energy is concentrated on headlands due to wave refraction; erosion is maximum. Wave energy is dispersed in the bays; deposition is maximum. Headland cliffs are cut back by wave erosion and the bays are filled with sand deposits until the coastline becomes straight.
