Long-term data about beaches from the UK, at Portrush in Northern Ireland, Perranporth in Cornwall, and Slapton Sands in Devon, as well as sites in France was also analysed, and revealed significant impacts of the extreme storm wave
conditions on the coastline.
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

I know what it is like to try and speak against the storm wave
of media opinion that in the last decade soaked the American public in propaganda that Communism is dead.

(We have seen this happen on Roxas Boulevard, while the reclamation of Dagat-dagatan has caused intermittent flooding in Navotas, Malabon, Valenzuela, Caloocan and Obando.) Storm surges and storm waves
riding on these surges wreak much havoc, but reclamation proponents do not show how the affected areas will be protected against these dangers.
