On the Georgia coast, movement of sand southward along the barrier islands means that parts of the islands, especially their northern ends, are prone to erosion. On the other hand, transport of sand commonly allows the southern ends of islands to grow as the channels between the islands slowly migrate south. COVID Resources.

The geology of South Georgia has long been interpreted as the product of processes acting at the Pacific margin of Gondwana in Jurassic and earlier times. This placement requires km of translation of South Georgia to its present location, for half of which there is no by: The geology of Georgia is the study of rocks, minerals, water, landforms and geologic history in Georgia.

The country is dominated by the Caucasus Mountains at the junction of the Eurasian Plate and the Afro-Arabian Plate, and rock units from the Mesozoic and Cenozoic are particularly prevalent. For much of its geologic history, until the uplift of the Caucasus, Georgia was submerged by marine.

During this time, the formation and erosion of mountain ranges, dramatic climactic changes, several episodes of flooding by the sea, and volcanic eruptions have influenced the state's geologic history of Georgia is not completely known or fully understood, and many significant questions remain.

The Geology of Georgia consists of four distinct geologic regions, beginning in the northwest corner of the state and moving through the state to the southeast: the Valley and Ridge region, also known as the Appalachian Plateau; the Blue Ridge; the Piedmont and the Coastal Fall Line is the boundary between the Piedmont and the Coastal Plain.
