This PowerPoint file will help you explore the origins of the coastal features such as wave-cut rock cliffs, sea stacks, wave-cut rock platforms, and the amazing array of beaches, deltas, and tidal flats. It explains the processes that create the diverse coastal landforms that have enthralled both residents and visitors from around the World, including glaciers, volcanoes, and earthquakes.
Two coastal geologists, who have over five decades of experience conducting scientific research on the Pacific Northwest Coast, tell their story of discovery and fascination with the Outer Coast of Oregon and Washington through richly illustrated original diagrams, photographs, satellite imagery, and engaging conversation. They have distilled the extensive scientific literature for this complex area into clear, readable text and graphics that explain the geological history of the coast, first in general, then later through detailed discussion of the geology and ecology of four coastal compartments starting at the border in Southern Oregon, and ending at east end of Dungeness Spit on the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Washington.
This is a PowerPoint file (202 MB) of the original diagrams, aerial photographs, and satellite imagery of the book that paints a truly complete picture of a complex topic rarely so smoothly distilled from the scientific literature.
