Beach Formation Video
An explanation of the process of beach formation, from rocks into sand. When the sea erodes the cliffs, large rocks fall away and into the sea. These rocks are tossed about by the action of the sea and they are eroded into smaller and smaller pebbles. The pebbles are eventually ground down into the tiny gains of sand that form a beach.

Coastlines - Erosion Video
Over time, waves erode a notch at the base of a cliff in a process called undercutting. When this notch becomes too heavy it will break off and crash into the sea. Different parts of the rock face are eroded at high and low tide. If high winds meet a high tide, the erosion will be greater. Different coastal features such as caves, arches and stacks are all formed by erosion.
