The coastline was all once straight and didn't have bit sticking out like they do now, but because there are different parts to the coastline that has strips of less risisent rock (soft rock) and strips that are resisent rock (hard rock) in between each other, then the soft rock is going to wear away quicker when destuctive waves hit it. So when these waves hit the hard rock the rock is so strong that it is able to withstand the force of the waves. So.. this means all those headlands you see are there because it is a layer of hard rock ie, chalk, and the bay beside it was once covered in soft rock but like I said has eroded away because of continuous waves have been crashing against it.
they are made from headlands. trust me I had this on a test and I got it right with this answer.
These are formed when cliffs of hard rock erode more slowly than the surrounding softer rock does.
Basically, a bay is formed first, which is when the coast erodes and makes kind of a C shape. the bits that are sticking out in the sea are called the headlands. headlands erode too, but slowly, because they are made of a hard rock. bays are made of softer rocks, therefore they erode quickly.
Headlands don't have beaches because they are cliffs
Headlands are inanimate objects they can not act at all.
You find headlands and bays on the sea coast of a country.
The member of parliament for Headlands is Mutasa Didymus Noel Edwin.
headlands are formed when the sea attacks a section of coast with alternating bands of hard and soft rock
