Geology of coral reef terraces, Huon Peninsula, New Guinea: a study of Quaternary tectonic movements and sea-level changes. Geological Society of America Bulletin, 85, – A spectacular flight of terraces occurs on the northeast seaboard of Huon Peninsula, New Guinea.

The terraces are clearly developed for more than 80 km and rise to over m.

The promontory (55 miles [89 km] wide) is bounded by the Vitiaz Strait of the Bismarck Sea (north), the Solomon Sea (east), the Huon Gulf (south), and the Markham River (west).

The Huon Peninsula is situated along the north-east coast of Papua New Guinea, and stretches from Lae in the south on the Huon Gulf to Sio in the north along the Vitiaz Strait. Along the coast, between these two points, numerous rivers and streams cut the terrain.

At a given location the uplift rate, when averaged over periods of yr or longer, appears to have been uniform for the past yr [3], [4].Cited by: Abstract. Repeated episodic uplift at Huon Peninsula is represented by regressive terraces Geology of the Huon Peninsula book into raised late Quaternary reef tracts.

Up to six regressive terraces occur on the Holocene reef tract and up to 15 occur on reef tracts II and III, which span the interval from 33 ka to 52 ka.
