  1. Wave cut platform and cliff
    1. The breaking of waves at the same point on a lowland coast may form a notch.
    2. Further erosion deepens the notch to form a cliff.
    3. Waves undercut the cliff face at the bottom to form a hanging cliff face which eventually collapses.
    4. This force the cliff face to retreat further inland leaving behind a rock floor which is known as a wake-cut platform
  2. Geo
