This United States Geological Survey (USGS) publication shows photographs exhibiting the demise of Jump-off Joe, a sea stack at Nye Beach, Newport, Oregon. In 1890, the sea stack was composed of middle Miocene concretionary sandstone of the Astoria Formation. The photos continue through 1990 when the sea stack is entirely gone.
