Abstract

True marine cliffs are extremely rare or almost absent in the humid tropics, where they have been said to be replaced by coastal slopes covered by vegetation, subject to occasional landslides by essentially similar to inland slopes. On the Paraiba coast, northeast Brazil, under a humid tropical climate, 21 % of the coastline consist of retreating marine cliffs, cut into Plio-Pleistocene sandy clays, a very favourable factor.
