Abstract: The Maltese Islands have undergone various physical processes over millions of years which have changed the size and the character of the islands. The most recorded factors are presented in various physical features on land and in forms of sub aerial and marine erosional structures. These features are present in numerous forms along the Mediterranean coastline and their presence help to explain the eustatic and climatic effects on the region. The Maltese archipelago is no exception to and various records are imprinted on our limestone coast which indicate the climatic variations which have acted in the past.
