A Walk through Time – Beaches and Bluffs of Torrey Pines

Beyond their stunning beauty, the cliffs of Torrey Pines stand like ramparts in the epic battle between the uplifting land and the restless sea. As storm waves attack the base of the modern cliff, it slowly retreats -- leaving behind a flat terrace that underlies the current beach. The same processes formed another terrace 125,000 years ago, but that ancient beach now sits high on the bluffs as the movement of tectonic plates pushes the land ever higher. Join geologist Wolfgang Berger as he leads us on this tour of geology in action.
