Sandstrom et al. (2020) present new elevation and age data for a flight of four marine terraces preserved along the western limb of the Cape Range anticline in western Australia. Their interpretation of these data provides an alternative estimate for the amount of tectonic deformation that has occurred since terrace formation. They conclude that less tectonic uplift has occurred in the region than previously reported and posit that their study provides a template for reducing the uncertainty associated with last interglacial paleoshoreline reconstructions.
