Quaternary coastal uplift along the Talara Arc (Ecuador, Northern Peru) from new marine terrace data
Marine terrace sequences have been investigated along the Talara Arc, a 1000-km-long stretch of the coast of Ecuador and northern Peru, characterized by subduction with a concave plan-view. SevenExpand

Present-day trends of vertical ground motion along the coast lines
Vertical ground motion (VGM) rates stand as crucial information, either for predicting the impact of the actual sea level rise along low-lying coasts or refining geodynamic problems. Because presentExpand

Renewed uplift of the Central Andes Forearc revealed by coastal evolution during the Quaternary
Most of the Pacific coast of the Central Andes, between 15°S and 30°S, displays a wide (a couple of kilometres) planar feature, gently dipping oceanwards and backed by a cliff. This morphology,Expand

Plio-Quaternary uplift of the Manta Peninsula and La Plata Island and the subduction of the Carnegie Ridge, central coast of Ecuador
This paper quantifies the uplift of the Manta Peninsula and La Plata Island (Ecuador) using marine terraces. These marine terraces are part of a more extensive segment of uplifting coast extendingExpand

Coastal staircase sequences reflecting sea-level oscillations and tectonic uplift during the Quaternary and Neogene
Many coasts feature sequences of Quaternary and Neogene shorelines that are shaped by a combination of sea-level oscillations and tectonics. We compiled a global synthesis of sea-level changes forExpand

Coastal Quaternary morphologies on the northern coast of the South China Sea, China, and their implications for current tectonic models: A review and preliminary study
Marine terraces, tidal notches and sediments along a 1200-km-long stretch of the northern coast of the South China Sea passive margin were studied and divided into five areas with varying tectonicExpand

Morphological and microtectonic analysis of Quaternary deformation from Puná and Santa Clara Islands, Gulf of Guayaquil, Ecuador (South America)
Abstract This paper presents the neotectonic study of Santa Clara and Puna Islands sited in the Gulf of Guayaquil eastern part. Both islands are located on the south-western segment of the fault zoneExpand

Transpressional tectonics in the Marrakech High Atlas: Insight by the geomorphic evolution of drainage basins
The Ouzzelarh Massif extends across the Marrakech High Atlas (MHA) and forms the highest elevated mountain belt. To better understand the evolution of collision-related topography, we present theExpand
