TerraceM is now in GSA Geosphere.

Along this paper we present TerraceM, an user-friendly GUI programed in MATLAB(R) to analyze marine and lacustrine terraces using high resolution topography. TerraceM uses several tools to obtain accurate measurements of the shoreline angle, a geomorphic feature that can be correlated with past sea-levels positions. TerraceM enable processing series of swath profiles from several sites in an efficient and structured workflow. We believe that TerraceM will help to expand and facilitate regional studies of marine and lacustrine terraces.
