Purple Splat

As a part of my GSCE Geography revision of coastal processes, I produced these simple animations. I hope they clarify some points for you if you are studying Geography at this level.

This is how a wave-cut platform is made. Erosion from the sea takes place between the "high" and "low" "water-mark". When a large notch is formed at the base of a cliff the cliff collapses and is taken out the sea by the tide.

Crack, cave, arch, stack, stump. It's Geography to me.

Here is the pebble being carried along the beach by the Longshore drift.
