Carter and Guy (49) have observed that (1) wave breaking occurred offshore at a storm and broken waves acted on the cliff, (2) mean values for storm wave height and period in the surf zone were 1 m and 6 s, respectively, (3) the largest erosion events occurred when the storm durations exceeded 10 h, and (4) sand-laden waves abraded the cliff toe.
The feature of benthic fauna and stratigraphic relationships with the other microfacies suggest that marl facies were deposited in an open lagoon, calm, deep and normal-salinity water but the co-occurrence of planktonic and some benthic (Nummulitidae) foraminifera in the base of the Asmari marl and marly limestone, suggest that this facies was deposited in calm, low energy hydrodynamic and deep normal salinity water which indicates deposition below the storm wave base [69,19,22,28]
