Transcript of Waves

Sea Bays
Sea Caves
Sea Arches
Headland are the areas of hard rock.

Sea Cliffs
Sea Stacks
The sea attacks a weakness in the rock eroding it to form a cave the erosion continues until it has eroded through the headline forming a arch.
How Sea Stacks are formed
How are bays formed
the sea attacks a section of the coast with hard and soft rock it erodes till there is a headland the area next to it becomes a bay
Where the waves hit they cut into to land first making the land above weak and continually undercutting it, giving it a steep face
A sea stack is once part of a sea arch.
Then over time waves continually attack the weak spots of the sea arch.
Eventually the sea arch breaks up into mini rocks that are sticking out near coastlines.
Result of destructive force
Also the water rises up and slowly erodes and it eats away at the cracks.
When a Bay is formed it is a destructive force because it erodes the coast until there is the headland and the area next to it is the bay
Destructive force
Damage the land to carve out the cave
Erodes the cliff to create the cave
A Destructive Force?
Constructive or Destructive?
You would find this type of landform near the coast somewhere where hard and soft rock erodes the land making this landform
You would find this type of landform near the coast somewhere where hard and soft rock erodes the land making this landform
A Sea Stack is part of a Destructive Force.
How Sea Caves Are Formed

A sea stack starts out as headland or an arch but breaks down into overtime from waves.
the remnants of the headland are sea stacks which will count as a result destructive force.
Where you can find Sea Stacks.
You can find Sea Stacks by almost any coastline that has any evidence of eroding from waves.
More Facts
Sea stacks can contain sea fossils that have helped scientists discover different species.
One of the largest Sea Stacks is the Haystack rock which is located just off the coast of Oregon, USA.
Where would you find this landform
Facts about bays
Headlands are destructive.
A river can also form a bay
You would find headlands along the sea or ocean .
A bay is a small section of water surrounded by land
Bays are smaller than gulfs
sea cliffs can be found all over the world, however in America they are found mostly on the Pacific coast.
When headlands are slowly erodes i also takes the sand and dirt.
These cliffs range from only a few yards high to
hundreds of yards above sea level.
Destructive Forces
How Formed
the continual action of waves on the coastline is know as abrasion
Where are sea cliffs
Malibu California
Interesting Facts
Interesting Random Facts!
The longest cave is 1,800 ft. long and 40 ft. tall called the Painted Cave
If the water pressure is built up in a sea cave it can create a blowhole. Like a whale!
One interesting fact is that it rebuilds it"s self over and over.
A sea arch is a destructive force it collapses and then rebuilds its self
you would find a sea arch by an ocean like the pacific ocean
the arch is enlarged by erosion due to the action of waves,wind and rain.
Attacks the weakest part of the rock or a small crack
The crack then increases in size
Water erosion widens the cave
