Explain the contribution of marine processes in creating the landscape in figure 1 (8marker)Name:  A002799D-41F5-41F9-9C97-D910F2265B74.jpg.jpeg

One marine process which creates the landscape is destructive waves. Destructive waves have a long fetch and are created in stormy conditions, this means they’ve had more time to increase their energy, so when they reach the shoreline they smash against the cliffs. This then breaks down and erodes the sediment, leaving it weaker and more vulnerable for future storms.

Another marine process is abrasion. As seen in figure 1, large rocks litter the beach. These are used as ammunition against the cliff as they smash into it and strip it down the cliffs material. Additionally the lithology is sedimentary so it’s weaker and can’t resist erosion as well compared to igneous, this leaves it to erode quicker this is seen my the formation of a wave cut notch. As destructive waves have eroded the base quicker causing a dent in the cliff, as time goes by this dent(notch) will increase and leave the cliff unstable, causing it too collapse. Furthermore this collapse will lead to the cliff face retreating and the process will repeat again.
