Which of the following are examples of coastal erosion?
Which type of coastal erosion involves destructive waves picking up beach material (e.g. pebbles) and hurling them at the base of a cliff?
Commonly known as the sandpaper effect, which type of coastal erosion involves breaking waves, concentrated between the high and low watermarks, which contain sand and larger fragments wearing away the base of a cliff or headland?
A type of coastal erosion that involves waves hitting the base of a cliff causing air to be compressed in cracks, joints and folds in bedding planes resulting in repeated changes in air pressure. As air rushes out of the cliff when the wave retreats it leads to an explosive effect as pressure is released. This process is supported further by the weakening effect of weathering. The material breaks off cliffs, sometimes in huge chunks.
Which type of coastal erosion occurs when waves cause rocks and pebbles to bump into each other and break up?
Which type of coastal erosion occurs when certain types of cliff erode as a result of weak acids in the sea?
Which of the following is not a factor that affects rates of coastal erosion?
The greenhouse effect is a natural process that traps the sun's warmth in the Earth's lower atmosphere.
