this is an interesting view of a well known subject, the channel cliffs. In the past I have been searching a long time for a picture that shows like yours the sediment layers clearly. They are of irregular thickness. The Serbian Milutin Milankovi? found the solution for the phenomenon. It's the "Milankovi? cycles", cyclical changes in the rotation and orbit of our planet that influence the amount of solar radiation striking different parts of Earth. This explains the varying sediment depositions--over thousands of years of course.
I get vertigo just looking at this! This is a shot where a person is absolutely necessary for scale. Thanks for posting it.
