Quaternary History of the Coorong Coastal Plain, Southern Australia: An Archive of Environmental and Global Sea-Level Changes

Book


Abstract


  • This book provides an up-to-date overview of the Quaternary geological and geomorphological

    evolution of the Coorong Coastal Plain region and its significance in a global context for

    understanding long-term records of Quaternary sea-level changes. The Coorong Coastal Plain

    in southern Australia is a natural laboratory for examining the response of coastal barrier

    landscapes to relative sea-level changes. The region provides direct evidence of coastal

    sedimentation during successive interglacials over the past 1 million years, as well as more

    recent volcanism. The region has received international focus and attracted scientists from

    around the World, with interests in long-term coastal evolution, sea-level changes, Quaternary

    dating methods and geochronology, soil development, temperate carbonate sedimentation,

    karst geomorphology and geologically recent volcanism.
