Image Details for Tessellated Pavement

1. Tessellated Pavement, Eaglehawk Neck, Tasmania. The coastal formation appears tiled because of sets of parallel fractures running at right angles. The pan (concave formations) are caused by salt crystals disintegrating the rock during low tide. The loaf (convex formations) have the erosion along the fracture lines.[2009 213D-001]
