|Title||Terrestrial and coastal landscape evolution on tropical oceanic islands|
|Keywords||island; evolution; landscape evolution; tropics; volcanic islands; carbonate islands|
|Abstract||Tropical oceanic islands owe their origin to volcanic eruptions, their location to plate tectonics, and their morphology to the interplay over time between a range of constructional and erosional processes. A broad distinction can be made between high volcanic islands, with summits up to 4,000 m, and low carbonate islands only a few metres above sea level.|
