cuspate foreland A large, triangular area of coastal deposition, which is dominated by many shingle ridges and is often terminated on the landward side by poorly drained terrain. It is the result of a long episode of local marine aggradation under wave advance from two dominant directions. Dungeness, on the south coast of England, is a typical example.
