Summary and Info
Describes the application of high-resolution coastal records to developing and testing tectonic models. The case studies are at scales ranging from global to local and deal with glacioisostasy, relative sea-level change and seismic and aseismic crustal deformation at a variety of timescales. An international perspective presenting a host of field data from contrasting parts of the world as well as novel modelling and analytical approaches. It is the only book that considers the topic with such scope. Readership: Tectonic geologists, Quaternary scientists, professionals involved in seismic hazard or coastal development/protection.
