Short summary
Tectonically active coasts are dynamic environments that host densely populated areas and associated infrastructure. We measured and described last interglacial marine terraces along 5000 km of the western South American coast. The pattern of terrace elevations displays short- to long-wavelength structures that may be controlled by crustal faults and the subduction of major bathymetric anomalies. Latitudinal climate characteristics may further influence their generation and preservation.
