The aim of this paper has been to verify schemes for the development of cliff coasts proposed earlier. This is justified by observations suggesting greater differentiation to the geological structure and consequent hydrogeological characteristics of the Southern Baltic cliffs than had been assumed by the AA. of earlier works. The measurement data for the investigated profiles yielded by the work to date show that : the most dynamic zone on the coast is the beach; clifftops are the parts least resistant to destruction; the strong storms of 2004, 2005/06 and 2006/07 seasons proved capable of activating the cliffs at 9/10 investigated profiles, though no relationship was found between the lithology of the sediments building the cliffs and rates of erosion
