On the coast of Tosa Bay, Southwestern Japan, there is a wide coastal terrace which was formed in the Last Interglacial and has been uplifted to altitudes of 150-200 m above the present sea level by crustal movement. Many valleys dissect the terrace surface with upwardly convex profiles in downstream reaches. Numerical simulations were conducted to investigate the development of longitudinal profiles of the valleys under the influence of baselevel change and marine erosion. The profiles obtained from the calculation fit quite closely to actual valley profiles, which demonstrate the validity of the equation
