GEOGRAPHY IN THE NEWS:
Earlier this month, the Dorset coast of southwest England saw what was probably the most significant rockfall of the last 60 years, with an estimated 4000 metric tons of cliffside giving way between Eype Beach and Seatown. The rockfall is particularly significant because this area is part of England's "Jurassic Coast," originally made famous by pioneering paleontologist Mary Anning and today a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which will likely make the spot a magnet for fossil hunters when the area is deemed safe. www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9467211/Biggest-rockfall-60-years-sees-4-000-ton-chunk-430ft-high-cliff-collapse.html
