On Natures Talk Show Fine art of Paleontology Series join our hosts as they discuss the fascinating Blue Beach in Nova Scotia! The cliffs and shoreline of Blue Beach expose beautifully bedded layers of sedimentary rocks. These consist mostly of sandstones, siltstones, and shales, which were laid down as sand, silt, and mud by rivers, lagoons, and along the ancient shores of a large marine bay or estuary, in brackish- (partially salty) to fresh-water conditions. The nearby landscapes were carpeted in dense, early forests and there were numerous swamps in the area. Primeval streams kept the landscape and the shoreline supplied with abundant sand and silt.
