The result or product of building up
The opening of railway communication with London in 1906 resulted in a considerable accretion of residential population.
Its seaward accretion is estimated at 6 ft.
They are merely craters raised above the level of the surrounding country by the gradual accretion of the soft oily mud, which overflows at frequent intervals whenever a discharge of gas occurs.
It will be seen that the only European country which gains by the exchange is France, and there the accretion is almost insignificant.
It was the final stage in a process of accretion dating back to the beginnings of the Christian reconquest in the 8th century.
