This study attempts to apply pedology to resolve the factors controlling the geomorphic evolution of terraces in the Pakua tableland. In this study, the weighted mean profile development index (PDI or WPDI) and the amounts of Fe and Al in soils are examined and compared with those obtained in other studies to estimate soils and/or river terrace ages in the Pakua tableland. Moreover, landscape evolution and active deformation of the study area are discussed based on the pedogenic processes
