Farther to the north the cliffs do not consist solely of glacial deposits, but are based on limsten (a limestone belonging to the Cretaceous system). Because of the varying resistance to erosion, the east coast of Djursland has developed the characteristic 'festoon' form. The north coast has no reinforcements of limestone and is for the most part built up by accumulations of beach material. This is why the coastline by Bonnerup, in spite of its smaller DR values, is straighter than the east coast.
Bird 50 formed in this way have axes aligned with the onshore resultants of wind action, as determined from directional wind-vector diagrams (Jennings, 1957). Their pattern interrupts and displaces pre-existing parallel beach ridges and dunes. Blow-outs are generally initiated where the retentive cover of dune vegetation is damaged or destroyed, particularly where a foredune is truncated at the back of the shore by storm-wave action, laying bare a cliff of crumbling sand in which the wind carves out a hollow, spilling some of the sand landwards.
