Abstract

Radiometric dating of emerged shorelines emphasizes a gradual upheaval of Kume Island since 4000 yr BP (+ 4 m in the N. W. and only + 1.6 in the S). Evidence of probable recent subsidence (submerged quarries) may be a prelude to the occurrence of an earthquake of great magnitude near Kume Island. (CM).
