Exposed from under Regolith's blanket

Note: After I recheck the pictures that I have presented in this post, I realize that the pictures, it seems, do not support the topic presented and will confuse the reader. I therefore revised and exchanged the previous pictures with images that I thought would be more supportive and relevant to the topic. I hope so.

The soil, dust, broken rock and various other materials, which are not consolidated, loose, heterogeneous, which we see on the surface, are actually a blanket. A blanket that covers the part underneath. This "blanket" is called Regolith in geological terms. Regolith itself often comes from what it covers, which is nothing but bedrock or ancient superficial deposits. Bedrock is a deposit of solid rock buried underground, consisting of igneous, sedimentary, or metamorphic rock (a source of rock fragments and minerals). Erosion and tectonic uplift are natural causes that can make bedrock into visible exposure. However, where we take these pictures, bedrock or superficial deposits are exposed by human activities that exploit this area as a source of boulder for the construction of waterfront embankments. After this bedrock and superficial deposits are exposed on the surface, it has become what is termed Outcrop, and geological observations can take place.
