Atlantic Ocean beach, 3 km to the North of the Kwanza River mouth. Dr. A. V. Surkov pointing at a second level of wave-cut notches (1), probably corresponding with the level of the first marine terrace. On top of the notches (niches) are remnants of beach sediments (2) formed on the Holocene bench which is currently being intensely destroyed by storm action. Pieces of the collapsed bench (3) are well visible on the foreground. Photo by Oleg Khotylev, Moscow State University
