Abstract

Optical dating, sedimentological analysis and soil profile development have been used to develop a chronology for, and an understanding of, the geomorphic evolution of the Holocene coastal plain between Otaki and Te Horo, North Island of New zealand. Three periods of dune activity have been identified (Foxton, Motuiti and Waitarere phases), the last two of which are believed to have resulted from anthropogenic activities. This coastal dune system is disrupted by the Otaki River and the gravels it delivers to the coastal zone
