Sedimentary cliff. View of sedimentary cliffs displaying the exposed junction between Lower Greensand (top, yellow) and Wealden (bottom, dark grey) strata. Both layers were laid down in the Cretaceous period (136-64 million years ago). The Lower Greensand, which is slightly eroded here, is a sedimentary formation made up of sandstone. The Wealden is made up of sedimentary layers of clays, silts and sands. Photographed on the Isle of Wight coastline, England.
