海浪不停地掏刷海崖,時間一久,海崖逐漸崩退,形成與海平面近乎同高度的平坦岩台,這種地形就稱為海蝕平台,將其切開來看,可發現像一塊3層的夾心蛋糕,第一層稱為蕈狀石層,由上部厚約2公尺的鈣質砂岩,下部黃褐色砂岩主成;第二層為薑石層,由上部內含不規則塊石的砂岩,下部黃褐色砂岩主成;第三層為燭台石層,砂岩內含球狀塊石。這些包藏在地層中的鈣質砂岩及塊石,質地堅硬,在地質學上稱為「結核」,是造就千奇百怪石雕奇景的關鍵。

This panorama was taken in Taiwan, Asia

This is an overview of 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.
