Abstract

We investigated the geomorphology and age of uplifted coral terraces and wave-cut notches along the coastlines of west Luzon, Philippines. These new data not only enable a better understanding of ancient sea levels and seismotectonic processes in the Philippines but also offer useful information for coastal/earthquake hazards assessment.
