... during the transition from transgression to regression as has been documented in the Fitzroy River in Australia ( Dalrymple et al., 2012 ). Sediments of the paleo-estuary present a coarse-fine-coarse longitudinal pattern of sediment texture, similar to the distribution typical of tide-dominated estuaries...

... with the climatic amelioration at the end of the Younger Dryas Stadial (see Chapter 2 ). Geomorphogical processes are active during interglacials as a function of the warmer climatic conditions and changing sea levels. Typically, processes in the interglacials include marine estuary infilling, inundation...

The Tirúa River estuary (38.3°S) records four large tsunamis and coseismic land-level changes over the past 450 years within the overlapping rupture zones of the great subduction-zone earthquakes of A.D. 1960 (M w 9.5) and 2010 (M w 8.8).

The Grand Rapids Formation was deposited in a slowly subsiding foreland basin with sediment delivered from rivers flowing axially to the north ( Fig. 1 ). Sediment was mostly derived from a fold-and-thrust belt to the west, with a minor...
