Coastal ridge landforms are mostly distributed in the lowlands along the Japanese coast and are important landforms for human settlement during the Holocene. This book presents the geomorphological development of coastal ridges during the Holocene in Japan. In addition, it offers a discussion of the influence of sea level changes and tectonic movements on coastal ridge formation. The relationship between coastal ridge development and human activities is also identified.
