SX8136 : Head deposit sea stacks

taken 2 years ago, near to Hallsands, Devon, Great Britain

Head deposit sea stacks
Head deposit sea stacks
These stacks are on a wave cut platform from the last interglacial period 100,000 years ago when temperatures were a bit higher and sea levels about a metre higher. Conditions in between were periglacial (tundra) leading to head deposits on the high and dry wave cut platform. Ice sheets and glaciers haven't reached south Devon at any stage in the current overall ice age.
