Comment is made on Sanders' useful wave tank experiments in relation to the erosion of rocky coasts. His findings on wave erosion level are related to observations in the field. Sanders' reluctance to accept that waves can erode a platform by hydraulic action alone is not shared, as it is believed that if the cutting of the notch were allowed to proceed, cliff falls would cause a platform to evolve.
