  • Collin, François, Françoise Hébert & Thierry Rebours, 2011: Falaises des Roches Noires : Promenade sur le rivage de Trouville à Honfleur
    Deze kleine gids introduceert de lezer in de geologische vindplaats van de Falaises des Roches Noires, gelegen langs de kust van de Côte Fleurie.\r\n\r\nOp de pagina\'s van dit werk geven de rotswanden hun geheimen prijs: de oorsprong van hun naam, de fenomenen van erosie, de hersenvormige silicaten, de venen, het enigma van de \"tabaksbuidels\", en de catastrofe bij Villerville in de winter van 1982. Tijdens een wandeling bij laagtij helpt deze gids je de fossielen te identificeren die je op de rotsachtige richels aantreft.
