Abstract

A correlation of fluvial terraces is presented for 8 non-glacial catchments of the eastern North Island, New zealand, within the actively uplifting Hikurangi Margin. Using a combination of loess and tephra coverbed stratigraphy, and radiocarbon and OSL dating of fluvial deposits and loess coverbeds, the AA. demonstrate correlation of 4 fill terraces, T1-T4. The AA. discuss the mechanisms of terrace formation, with particular attention to the relative effects of climate and baselevel control
