The present work investigates the possible repercussions of the MWP-1C and the 8.2K events on the occurrence of drowned reefs on the far-field eastern Brazilian margin. A bathymetric survey was conducted along a sector of the Abrolhos continental shelf known as California Reef using a multibeam echosounder (Reson 7101-240 kHz), covering an area of approximately 20 km2. Data were processed using Caris HIPS & SIPS 9.1, and a workflow was applied, including patch test correction, tidal elevation, measured sound velocity, and spikes removal. A 5 m mesh grid was generated through natural neighbourhood interpolation in Surfer 13 software (without gap-filling between navigation lines). The analysis was based on comparing of RSL curves available in the literature with high-resolution depth signatures of different geomorphometric classes recognized in the California Reef survey area. Thus, it was possible to infer evolutionary patterns according to the sea level change.
