What is sea erosion?
Sea erosion is when after a long peiod of time the rocks start to weaken and create a dent in the rocks by oceans and waves crashing on them! The erosion of the land by the constant battering of the sea, primarily by the processes of hydraulic action, corrasion, attrition, and corrosion is what Sea erosion is.

Erosion is when rocks or sand rub together, and over millions of years it breaks down into dust, sand, or what ever you might call it. Erosion wears away the land. The land is… worn away by wind and water erosion. Raindrops cause splash erosion.
why dose it happen?
it is slowly eroding due to the clay not being stronger enough to hold the weight of the cliff.
i dont know i ask u first
because to main rock type is clay which is easly erroded by the sea therefor the cliff is undercutt and it falls down this happend again and again
Well, since sand is already very eroded rock a coastline would probably be affected more if the coast was rocky. The type of rock also would affect the rate of erosion. Sedime…ntary rock erodes faster than igneous and metamorphic im pretty sure. hope it helps.
they are caused by erosion hope that helps
erosion of shale inclusions in bedded sandstone of the Kinsale Formation to form caves which run all the way through the headland at Hole Open Bay
cliffs are created by erosion
The rising seas are due to neither of the above. Rising seas are caused firstly by the warm oceans expanding, and secondly, by the melting of glaciers and ice caps.
Get moses to push it back
Have you seen them? You get an idea from Moab Utah, however, that is not by the sea. Down on the tip of the Baja is Cabo San Lucas which happens to have one o the most endeari…ng arches and the only right next to solid plateaus. Well the same answer goes for rocks as well, it Is the erosion caused by the salt/sea. Nothing like it. However, wind could blow and blow and never burn the little arch down. But, with the rising and falling of the tides, the hurricanes, and the ships that create continual water blasting against it, you would erode as well. but, wind plays next to zero impact. think of what it takes to erode a rock. Think how long - centuries of wear and tear by salt water. Fresh water? There will be weathering, but certainly not as compared to salt water.
Water. Specifically the wave action beating on the cliff.
