Coastal Cliffs and Wave Action

Three images showing the effects of coastal erosion

Detailed Description

Coastal cliffs are subject to wave action as well as precipitation-induced seepage. These examples from both northern and southern California illustrate several different styles of failure that can occur both at the bottom of cliffs (from burial) and at the tops of cliffs (from falling over).
