  • I like these pictures, we also have eroding cliffs where I live in Flamborough, UK. That damn North Sea hammers and erodes our coastline and houses are dropping into the sea. http://www.flamborough.me.uk

    Geography   Cliff Collapse Geography Cliff Collapse Presentation Transcript

    • Cliff Collapse
    • The collapse of cliffs can be described in three steps.
      • Soft clay cliffs are impermeable and hold rain water.
      • The sea is attacking/eroding the base of the cliff, causing a wave-cut notch to form.
      • At the same time heavy rainfall causes the soft clay to become saturated, causing a slip plane to form.
      • The weight of the clay causes the cliff to slump or collapse.
      • This results in……
      • CLIFF COLLAPSE
    • Case Study – The Holderness Coast, Holbeck Hall Hotel.
      • At Flamborough Head there is a large amount of chalk in the cliffs. The chalk is much harder than the boulder clay at Filey Bay to the North and Holderness to the South.
