Sea Stacks and Sandstone is a celebration of Britain's coastal geology - ammonites and sand, sea stacks and wavecut platforms

Sea Stacks and Sandstone is a celebration of Britain's coastal geology - ammonites and sand, sea stacks and wavecut platforms. It goes paddling in the rock pools to examine the rock samples so perfectly polished up for us by the sea. Between the lichen and the low-tide line, everything is out in the open to be looked at: desert sand dunes emerging out of the ocean; cliffs bent and crumpled by two continents crashing into each other; a band of red-hot basalt squeezed from somewhere in Scotland

SANDSTONE AND SEA STACKS: RONAL TURNBULL Book Number: 74079 Product format: Hardback We British do, as the song points out, like to be beside the seaside, a. .There are caves, arches and sea stacks, cliffs bent and crumpled by unimaginable forces, solidified lava in all its forms and a myriad of fossils, desert sand dune emerging from the ocean, millions of rockpool microenvironments, cliffs, platforms and boreholes created by swift-moving tides and collection of sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic rocks, stones and clays to rival anywhere in the world.

A stack or sea stack is a geological landform consisting of a steep and often vertical column or columns of rock in the sea near a coast, formed by wave erosion. Stacks are formed over time by wind and water, processes of coastal geomorphology. They are formed when part of a headland is eroded by hydraulic action, which is the force of the sea or water crashing against the rock.

A Beachcomber's Guide to Britain's Coastal Geology. Real geology isn't looking up the books and memorising long words. Author: Ronald Turnbull. Publisher: Frances Lincoln. Sea Stacks and Sandstone is a celebration of Britain's coastal geology - ammonites and sand, sea stacks and wavecut platforms. Real geology is looking at real rock, and working out what has been happening to it. What Britain is and where it came from, just what's been going on for the last 500 million years: all is revealed, in a continuous slice around our seaside.

Coastal Archaeology of Britain. A The recognition of the wealth and diversity of England’s coastal archaeology has been one of the most important developments of recent years. Some elements of this enormous resource have long been known. The so-called ‘submerged forests’ off the coasts of England, sometimes with clear evidence of the human activity, had attracted the interest of antiquarians since at least the eighteenth century, but serious and systematic attention has been given to the archaeological potential of the coast only since the early 1980s

Sea Stacks and Sandstone is a celebration of Britain's coastal geology - ammonites and sand, sea stacks and wavecut platforms. It goes paddling in the rock pools to examine the rock samples so perfectly polished up for us by the sea.Between the lichen and the low-tide line, everything is out in the open to be looked at: desert sand dunes emerging out of the ocean; cliffs bent and crumpled by two continents crashing into each other; a band of red-hot basalt squeezed from somewhere in Scotland. Britain today lacks glaciers and volcanoes, but the grand geological earth-shifter we do see is the sea, hard at it around our 6000 miles of coast. And as you wander along the edge of the sand, gradually slowing your eye to the beach-holiday speed of looking at things, you see small creatures, seashells and corals from hundreds of millions of years ago.Real geology isn't looking up the books and memorising long words. Real geology is looking at real rock, and working out what has been happening to it. What Britain is and where it came from, just what's been going on for the last 500 million years: all is revealed, in a continuous slice around our seaside.
