Abstract

This study attempts investigations of geomorphology and soils of a part of coastal area of Bangladesh, and to work out the role of different pedogenic processes, neotectonic activities (folding), and Late Quaternary climate/sea-level fluctuations in the development of the soils and landscape. Based on ages and heights above the mean sea level for the 5 terraces recognized in the study area, the overall base-level rise rates are calculated for the mainland (Jaldi anticline). These base level changes represent combined effects of eustatic sea level and tectonic uplift due to folding
