rate 18. also called Shore, broad area of land that borders the sea. The coastlines of the world's continents measure about 312,000 km (193,000 miles). They have undergone shifts in position over geologic time because of substantial changes in the relative levels of land and sea. Studies of glaciations during the Pleistocene Epoch (1, 600,000 to 10,000 years ago) indicate that drops in sea level caused by the removal of water from the oceans during glacial advances affected all coastal areas. During the last Pleistocene glacial period, the sea level is thought to have been almost 122 m (400 feet) lower than it is today, resulting in the exposure of large portions of what is now the continental shelf. Such changes in sea level have also played an important role in shaping the coasts. Glacial ice descending from coastal mountains in Alaska, Norway and certain other areas excavated deep U-shaped depressions in times of lowered sea level. When the glacial ice melted and the level of the sea rose again, these steep-sided valleys were inundated, forming fjords. Estuaries, formed by the flooding of coastal river valleys, also are found in regions where the sea level has risen significantly. Other factors that are instrumental in molding the topography of coasts are destructive erosional processes (e.g., wave action and chemical weathering), deposition of rock debris by currents and tectonic activity that causes an uplifting or sinking of the Earth's crust. The configuration and distinctive landforms of any given coast result largely from the interaction of these processes and their relative intensity, though the type and structure of the rock material underlying the area also have a bearing. For example, coastal terrains of massive sedimentary rock that have been uplifted by tectonic forces and subjected to intense wave erosion are characterized by steep cliffs extending out into the water. These nearly vertical sea cliffs generally alternate with irregularly shaped bays and narrow inlets. By contrast, wide sandy beaches and relatively smooth plains of unconsolidated sediment prevail in areas of crustal subsidence where deposition is intense. Such coasts are characterized by sandbars paralleling the shoreline, as well as by tidal flats.
rate 19. Ivory Coast officially Republic of Côte d'Ivoire; Country, western Africa. Area: 124,504 sq mi (322,463 sq km). Population (2002): 16,805,000. Capital: Yamoussoukro; seat of government, Abidjan. The population consists of various ethnic groups, including the Bete, Senufo, Baule, Anyi, Dyula, Bambara and Dan. Languages: French (official), Baule, Anyi, Bete, Bambara, Dan. Religions: Islam, Roman Catholicism, traditional religions. Currency: CFA franc. Côte d'Ivoire can be divided into four major regions: a narrow coastal region, an equatorial rainforest in the west, a cultivated forest zone in the east and a savanna region in the north. Agriculture employs more than 50% of the workforce. The country is the world's largest producer of cocoa and a major producer of coffee; other exports include bananas, cotton, rubber, timber and diamonds. It is a republic with one legislative house; its chief of state is the president and its head of government is the prime minister. European powers came to the area to trade in ivory and slaves beginning in the 15th century and local kingdoms gave way to French influence in the 19th century. The French colony of Côte d'Ivoire was founded in 1893 and full French occupation took place 1908–18. In 1946 it became a territory in the French Union; in 1947 the northern part of the country separated and became the nation of Upper Volta (now Burkina Faso). Côte d'Ivoire peacefully achieved autonomy in 1958 and independence in 1960, when Félix Houphouë t-Boigny was elected president. The country's first multiparty presidential elections were held in 1990. Political turmoil has persisted since Houphouë t-Boigny died in 1993.
rate 20. Area, coast of Newfoundland, Canada French fishermen were allowed by the English to fish and to dry their catch in the region after France gave up all other claims to Newfoundland in 1713. As defined by the Treaty of Paris (1783), the French Shore extended west around the island from Cape St. John in the north to Cape Ray in the southwest. In the 1880s Newfoundland began to develop a lobster fishery and the treaty came under dispute. France sold its claims to the territory in 1904.
rate 21. shore; Broad area of land that borders the sea. The coastlines of the world's continents measure about 193,000 mi (312,000 km). They have undergone shifts in position and changes in shape over geologic time because of substantial changes in the relative levels of land and sea. Other factors that alter coasts are erosion processes such as wave action and weathering, deposition of rock debris by currents and tectonic activity. Coastal features result largely from the interaction and relative intensity of these processes, though the type and structure of the underlying rocks also play a part.
