A primary coast is defined as one defined by non-marine processes. Fjords, deltas, isostatic rebound, and tectonic uplift may all create primary coasts. Discuss two of these four processes.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
