Shore benches on the island of Oahu, Hawaii

Harold Thornton Stearns
Shore benches on the island of Oahu, Hawaii
Bulletin of the Geological Society of America (October 1935) 46 (10): 1467-1482

Abstract

This is the classic paper that brought together all of the evidence of marine limestone deposits, both elevated and submerged, and correlated these with different stands of the sea. Stearns concludes that the islands have definitely undergone subsidence and that some of the differences can be ascribed to eustatic changes in sea level. He comes to no firm conclusion as to whether the islands have also undergone tectonic uplift.
