Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to describe the stratigraphy, distribution, and age of the fluvial sediments that underlie the youngest regionally extensive terrace along several rivers in the central Oregon Coast Range. The [14]C age determinations indicate that an aggradation episode of regional extent began during the Pleistocene-Holocene transition and that the main part of this aggradation event was of relatively short duration. Although documentation of this episode is the main theme of the paper, the AA. also speculate about possible causes of stream aggradation in the region
