Rocky shorelines are best typified by the San Juan islands, where bedrock is prevalent along the water’s edge and shorelines lack abundant mobile sedimentparticles of clay, silt, sand, gravel, or cobble, transported by water, are called sediment.. Sediment tends to be limited to isolated pocket beaches that exhibit little longshore sedimentparticles of clay, silt, sand, gravel, or cobble, transported by water, are called sediment. transport.
