Clues

  • A chemical change occurs in the rock causing it to weaken and wear away. (8, 10)
  • As seas become shallower the waves alter direction to reflect the shape of the coastline. (4, 10)
  • Disintegration of rocks without a physical change. (10, 10)
  • Fragments of rocks are flung against the cliff. (9)
  • Rock fragments being carried by the sea knock against one another so they become smaller and more rounded. (9)
  • Sections of cliff that are particularly resistant to erosions so stick out. (9)
  • The disintegration or decay of rocks in their original place at ground surface. (10)
  • The natural break down of rocks. (10, 10)
  • The power of waves forces air into holes and cracks in the rocks causing them to break apart. (9, 6)
  • Waves break against cliff erosion close to the high tide line this takes a 'bite' out of the cliff. (4, 3, 5)
