The other type of sand is formed as a result of submarine erosion of Late Pleistocene varved clays up to 30 cm thick (alternating varved horizontal layers of brown clays and grey silty layers) are located in the nearshore, whereas below the sand accretion terrace on the bottom surface there are traces of submarine erosion, indicating sediment transport in NW direction.
