Caption: Illustrating coastal erosion. Waves cause erosion by hydraulic action. Weak areas of rock cliffs turn into small caves which continue to deepen and enlarge over time. The caves enlarge to become high arches and eventually collapses leaving an isolated stack. Over time the stack erodes leaving only a stump.
