Caption: Sedimentary rock coastal erosion. View of the unusual strata on a sedimentary rock seen at Big Sur, on the Californian coastline. This rock is made of many layers of sediment that have been deposited over millions of years. The extremely fine lines indicate calm conditions over the time that the sedimentation took place. Softer layers have been more easily eroded by the action of water. This part of the coastline is composed mainly of Santa Lucia granite and Carmelo formation, a sedimentary rock over 60 million years old.
