Caption: Patterns in dolostone coastal rocks. These lines, splits and shapes have formed in a flat dolostone bed of coastal rocks. They formed due to extension and compression forces acting on the rocks. These rocks, from the Kimmeridge Clay Formation, in Dorset, UK, are part of the Jurassic Coast Heritage Site. This formation consists of mudstones and shales.
