Soil outcropping in beach

A layer of soil, likely dating to more than 5000 years ago when sea level was lower, outcrops from a beach near Seldovia. This soil layer is continuous with peat outcrops that are well below mid-tide at the Outside Beach. The peat includes detrital logs and probable arrow grass root. It likely formed in a protected salt-marsh that was eventually drowned by rising sea level.
