Wave-cut notch in the eastern side of Bat's Head
Wave-cut notch in the eastern side of Bat's Head
This wave-cut notch at the base of the cliffs on the eastern side of Bat's Head shows that the cliffs are actively being eroded. As well as physical erosion by sand-carrying waves, there may be some biological erosion too from the organisms living in the inter-tidal zone. The chalk at the bottom of the notch and on the platform is a very clean white as it is usually submerged. There is a discussion of this inter-tidal notch on Ian West's intnernet field guide to the Geology of the Wessex Coast.
