The Iguape River estuary - located on the southern coast of Sao Paulo state (Brazil) - presents geomorphological records of the complex processes operating during the Late Holocene. Dating the top deposits of coastal (fluvial, transition and marine deposits) low terraces, contributes to the understanding of the erosive-depositional events resulting from autogenic and allogenic processes. Optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) dating, grain-size and morphostructural analysis were used to investigate the Late Holocene geomorphological evolution of the Iguape estuary. The results suggest that formation of the Iguape estuary is consistent with a marine incursion triggered by climate pulses by around 2.7 ka. However, the coastline displacement was controlled by base-level adjustments and fluvial incision phases probably induced by fault activity associated with the Guapiara Lineament. Finally, the results show that the estuarine systems in humid tropical regions are significantly sensitive to short time-scale climate events during the Holocene. (AU)
