Cyprus is located on the subduction zone between African and Eurasia Plates. The topography of the island is a result of distributed deformation associated with the subduction related processes in the south of the Eurasia Plate. Trodos and Kyrenia mountains are major morphotectonic units that integrally tied to plate boundary deformations. The presence of uplifted marine terraces is piece of evidence of subduction related active deformation in the part of the island. To understand rate and pattern of deformation, I conducted geomorphic mapping of marine terraces by ArcGIS and analyzing of paleo-cliffs by TerraceM Matlab based program. As a result of these analyzes I calculated the uplift rates with reference to MIS 5. Here will present morphotectonic implications from temporal and spatial distribution of marine terraces along the Cyprus.
