Processes and rate of retreat of the clay and sandstone sea cliffs of the northern Boulonnais (France)

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Retreat of the clay and sandstone cliffs of the northern Boulonnais has been quantified using stereo photogrammetry. The low retreat rate of this coastal strip is far less than that encountered on chalk and clay-chalk cliffs of either side of the Channel. The retreat rate is closely related to shore platform morphology and dynamics. This study will help to determine the long term evolution of the Boulonnais coast
