Bluff Recession in the Elwha and Dungeness Littoral Cells, Washington, USACoastal Bluff Recession
The spatial distribution and temporal variability of retreat rates of coastal bluffs composed of unconsolidated glacial deposits are of interest to landowners who occupy bluff-top properties as well
Constraining the long-term lowering rates of shore platforms on volcanic islands in the East Sea of the Korean Peninsula, using cosmogenic 36Cl
The occurrence of global warming and concomitant rises in sea level means it is important to assess the vertical lowering rates and evolution of shore platforms. Most previous studies, however, were
Recent acceleration in coastal cliff retreat rates on the south coast of Great Britain
Past cliff retreat rates over millennial time scales for chalk cliffs on the south coast of Great Britain are derived by coupling high-precision cosmogenic radionuclide geochronology and rigorous numerical modeling to suggest acceleration is the result of thinning of cliff-front beaches, exacerbated by regional storminess and anthropogenic modification of the coast.
Deciphering boulder mobility and erosion from cosmogenic nuclide exposure dating
Large boulders are prominent features in many geomorphic systems and are frequently targeted for cosmogenic exposure dating. Presently, there are little data or theory predicting exposure age,
Detrital signals of coastal erosion and fluvial sediment supply during glacio-eustatic sea-level rise, Southern California, USA
Coastal erosion, including sea-cliff retreat, represents both an important component of some sediment budgets and a significant threat to coastal communities in the face of rising sea level. Despite
Multi-objective optimisation of a rock coast evolution model with cosmogenic 10Be analysis for the quantification of long-term cliff retreat rates
Abstract. This paper presents a methodology that uses site-specific topographic and cosmogenic 10Be data to perform multi-objective model optimisation of a coupled coastal evolution and cosmogenic
Chapter 11 The rock coast of Korea
Abstract The rocky shores of the east and west coasts of Korea have distinctly different geomorphologies. Tidal processes dominate coastal landform development on the west coast, facing the Yellow
Interactive comment on “ Controls on the distribution of cosmogenic 10 Be across shore platforms ” by Martin D
We would like to thank Dr. Alan Trenhaile for his positive and constructive comments. Below are our responses to all of these comments including details of any changes we have made to the manuscript


Evaluation of Cliff Retreat and Beach Nourishment in Southern Portugal Using Photogrammetric Techniques
Abstract This paper develops an evolutionary model of shoreline retreat along the cliffed coast of Forte Novo–Garrão (Algarve, Portugal) and investigates the relationship of the retreat pattern to
Coastal bluffs and sea cliffs on Puget Sound, Washington
Puget Sound and Georgia Strait form an inland sea that straddles the U.S.-Canadian border and that lies within a north-south trending depression separated from the Pacific Ocean by the Olympic
The southern Whidbey Island fault: An active structure in the Puget Lowland, Washington
Information from seismic-reflection profiles, outcrops, boreholes, and potential field surveys is used to interpret the structure and history of the southern Whidbey Island fault in the Puget Lowland

Determination of 36Cl Production Rates Derived from the Well-Dated Deglaciation Surfaces of Whidbey and Fidalgo Islands, Washington
Abstract The 36Cl dating method is increasingly being used to determine the surface-exposure history of Quaternary landforms. Production rates for the 36Cl isotopic system, a critical component of

Land-level changes from a late Holocene earthquake in the northern Puget Lowland, Washington
An earthquake, probably generated on the southern Whidbey Island fault zone, caused 1‐2 m of ground-surface uplift on central Whidbey Island ;2800‐3200 yr ago. The cause of the uplift is a fold that
A Tsunami About 1000 Years Ago in Puget Sound, Washington
These findings show that a tsunami was generated in Puget Sound, and they tend to confirm that a large shallow earthquake occurred in the Seattle area about 1000 years ago.
