Abstract

Between 1994 and 2006, winter storm waves exposed more than 4.5 km2 of late-Holocene forest soil on shore platforms at 19 localities of the Oregon coast. Once exposed, wave action eroded the soil rapidly (1 to 2 years). The intact forest soil and roots on the shore platforms must have been nearly continuously buried, protected and preserved prior to recent exposure. This late-Holocene buried forest provides the basis for a conceptual model of coastal evolution : a three stage reversal of erosion and sand supply must have occurred
