Abstract

Summarizes the results of recent researches and some problems on the Holocene sea-level change in Japan. The studies are concentrated on the areas of large coastal plains. Uplifting areas fringed by the Holocene marine terraces (south Kanto, Rynkyn islands have been also intesively studied. Most Japanse sea-level curves are characterized by higher sea-level of ca. 6000 y. B. P. which followed rapid sea-level rise accompanying the deglaciation. Subdivision of the terraces was probably caused by co-seismic uplift in association with large earthaquakes (from the authors).
