Abstract
    In the Coastal Ridges area off the coast of Belgium a correlation is found between the grain size distribution of bottom samples and the sea bed morphology. A plot of average grain size of bottom sediments along a transect perpendicular to the coast is out of phase with bathymetry: the largest average grain size values do not coincide with the ridge crest but are observed on the seaward flank. These observations support the hypothesis of a landward accretion of the Coastal Ridges.
