Yehliu Geopark(Ginger,Candle Rocks)
Taiwan

在海蝕平台區,面積較大的平坦窪地上經常蓄積海水,導致岩體發生溶蝕的現象,造成一片盤狀的平淺凹陷區。

形成薑石的岩層中含有不規則結核,結核四周的質地比較軟,經過侵蝕之後凹下,使較硬的結核就像浮出地表般,再經風與海浪的不斷侵蝕下,形成飽經風霜的粗糙外表,而薑石表面縱橫交錯的紋路,則是當結核還深埋在地層中時,因地殼擠壓造成的破裂面。這些類似老薑根節的紋路,在地質學上稱為「節理」。因粗糙的外表,再加上灰中帶黃的色澤,酷似做菜用的老薑,所以稱做薑石。

曾有人形容這些燭台是仙女遊歷野柳岬所遺留下來的,為此地增添了不少神話。燭台石的形成須有特殊的岩層、結核構造,及臨海的地理位置,終年接受海浪的衝擊等。

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
