Hillslope and channel evolution in a marine terraced landscape , Santa Cruz , California

  title={Hillslope and channel evolution in a marine terraced landscape , Santa Cruz , California},
  author={Nan A. Rosenbloom and R. S. Anderson},
A flight of marine terraces along the central California coastline provides a unique setting for the study of topographic evolution. Wavecut platforms manfled by 2-6 m of marine terrace cover deposits are separated by10-50 m tall decaying sea cliffs. Palcocliff edges become more rounded with age, yet the details of the profries and frequent bedrock exposure on the upper slopes imply weatheringlimited Wansport. Five bedrock sueam channels etched through t e marine terrace sequence display one to… CONTINUE READING
