Abstract

A flight of Quaternary marine terraces provides a framework for quantitative analysis of abandoned sea cliff modification as a function of time. The relationships are weaker than for stream terraces and fault scarps in unconsolidated materials but the method can probably be used successfully to distinguish early, middle and late Quaternary fault scarps or sea cliffs in consolidated materials
