... that unconformably onlap Mesozoic to Precambrian rocks of the Piedmont Section; it is not discussed here. It commonly is separated from the Middle Coastal Plain by an escarpment. This topographic boundary is the Orangeburg Scarp in North and South Carolina and northern Georgia, the Chippenham and Thornburg Scarps...

... Formation of South Carolina and North Carolina. The Duplin was deposited during a middle Pliocene marine transgression that formed the Orangeburg scarp, a prominent wave-cut geomorphic paleoshoreline of the southeastern U.S. Atlantic Coastal Plain. We conclude that (1) the scarp in South Carolina was formed...

..., bounded to the west by Paleozoic schist of the Piedmont province and bounded to the east by the east-facing Orangeburg Scarp ( Swift and Heron, 1969 ). This scarp was named for a site at the City of Orangeburg in Orangeburg County (South Carolina), where the toe of the scarp lies at ~64 m (210 ft) above...

... ; Rowley et al., 2013 ; Liu, 2014 ). Results across these models differ, but none are able to replicate the short wavelength of the observed uplift across the Cape Fear Arch and Orangeburg Scarp. Recently, Moucha and Ruetenik (2017) added flexure due to sediment loading to their dynamic topography...

.... Scarp geometries and elevation gradients along the northern CRVTC margin in the lower (southeastern) valley are correlative with the Middle Pliocene Orangeburg Scarp a few miles to the east (Fig. 5 ). In addition, the stratigraphy of the uppermost terrace in the CRVTC is distinctly correlative...

... such as Cascadia (e.g., Burgette et al., 2009 ). There is evidence for tectonic activity in North Carolina and South Carolina. However, the calculated long-term uplift rate of ∼0.02–0.05 mm yr −1 along the Orangeburg Scarp (South Carolina) ( Dowsett and Cronin, 1990 ) is not sufficient. The rate of uplift along...

... incised subsequent to the early Pliocene high-stand that began to regress from the Orangeburg Scarp (presently ∼80 m above mean sea level [msl]) ca. 3 ± 0.2 Ma ( Cronin, 1981 ). Inland trends of these groups correlate well with the dissected southwestern edge of the Duplin Formation (3.6–2.8 Ma; Owens...

... in the methodology ( Telford et al. 2004 ). The MAT has been applied to Pacific basin sequences by Dowsett & Robinson (1998) . The initial PRISM sea-level estimate was 35 ± 18 m above present sea level based upon the altitude (corrected for uplift) of the Orangeburg Scarp, a mid-Pliocene palaeoshoreline...

Additionally, uplift is also suggested by a couple of southeast-facing scarps between Middleton Place and Adams Run ( Figure 2...
