SW3835 : Raised Beach and head deposits

near to Lower Boscaswell, Cornwall, Great Britain

Raised Beach and head deposits
Raised Beach and head deposits
Rounded stones in eroded cliff were beach material 120000 years ago when the sea level was a bit higher due to a warmer climate. The climate then worsened as the world went into the most recent glacial period (100000 to 15000 years ago) and the area was tundra - the angular rocks above were split by ice and sea level was over 40 metres below current levels
