Summary:
"This volume concerns the application of high-resolution coastal records to developing and testing tectonics models. The case studies are at scales ranging from global to regional and local, and deal with glacio-isostasy, relative sea-level changes and seismic and aseismic crustal deformation at a variety of time scales. Data are drawn from a wide variety of disciplines, including geology, seismology, geodesy,  Read more...

Abstract:

"This volume concerns the application of high-resolution coastal records to developing and testing tectonics models. The case studies are at scales ranging from global to regional and local, and deal with glacio-isostasy, relative sea-level changes and seismic and aseismic crustal deformation at a variety of time scales. Data are drawn from a wide variety of disciplines, including geology, seismology, geodesy, geomorphology, geochronology and archaeology." "The book will be of interest to a wide audience including academics with an interest in tectonics and/or Quaternary science and professionals involved in seismic hazard or coastal development/protection."--BOOK JACKET.
