Elmer – Sublittoral

The coast at Elmer, West Sussex is partially protected by rock groynes, details of which can be found on the Shoresearch page.
Off shore the seabed

The sandy beach extends a few tens of metres below the low water mark and gives way to mixed ground: gravel, shingle and cobbles over ?chalk. The larger shingle and cobbles are richly covered with algae and sponges.
