What are relict cliffs?
Relic cliffs are cliffs that used to be active (Eroded) when the sea reached the raised beach beneath it. (Higher sea levels) Now these cliffs are relict because they receive no erosion and have vegetation on them.

Yes it does.
The fiscal cliff is a term coined by Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke to describe a set of laws expiring December 31, 2012 that will result in major spending cuts and tax… increases that will affect every American. Among the laws set to expire are: payroll tax cuts and Bush era tax cuts for the wealthy. Simultaneously, spending will be cut across the board as part of the Budget Control Act of 2011. This 19.63% increase in tax revenue and 0.25% reduction in spending in 2013 is projected to cut the US deficit by roughly half (about $600 billion). While that sounds good in theory, economists warn that it could have a negative effect on the economy in the short term.
A sea cliff is a high, steep rocky formation that is found on the edges of land on the coast. Sea Cliffs are quite common features found along exposed coastlines. They a…re formed by physical erosion such as wave and wind action. Most will retreat landwards as wave action undercuts their base, this will then cause the overhang to weaken, making a collapse possible.
The word "cliff" means "bangin" in Tagalog language.

Relict boundary is a boundary that has ceased to function, but its imprint can still be detected on the cultural landscape An example would be East and West Berlin.
I have just driven over a cliff. This cliff is very steep and colorful.
Cliff regrading is restructuring the face of a cliff to make the gradient less steep. This is an example off soft engineering, although it is hard to find accurate information… about it on the internet. A good place to find more information is GCSE Geography.
Cliff Cola is the most famous cliff in South America.
Cliffs can get weathered because of all the rain on them and they can crumbled also they can be eroded by weather and the sea because if there is a lot of strong waves it can …wear away the cliff face and it can crumble making it dangerous in some places

It's an area of coastal land (cliff) who's base has been eroded away, usually by the elemants where the top of the cliff is now unsupported :)
There are various processes which lead to this kind of land form. The two I will describe here are plate tectonics and coastal erosion. The surface of the Earth is broken up… into a number of large sections. These are known as plates which move around very slowly on the underlying convecting mantle. The edges of the plates touch and when these plates push in towards one another they get forced upwards, which is what produces mountain ranges (over millions of years of course). The mountains that are formed will be rocky and jagged and most likely have a cliff face. The sea is constantly eroding areas of land. As this land retreats back the ground level will start to rise above sea level, give it a very long time and if the difference between ground and sea level is enough the erosion will have caused a cliff face to form - such as the White Cliffs of Dover. The process of erosion which lead to this is called hydraulic action, which cuts under the base of the cliff.
The mountains which are formed by by the blocks earth's crust or rock-bed developed by the tensional forces and faulting are known as Relict Mountains.It is also known as Bloc…k mountains.
