Early Flandrian land and sea-level changes in Lower Strathearn

Abstract

The morphological and stratigraphic studies reported here relate to early Flandrian relative sea-level changes in the carselands, or Postglacial raised estuarine flats, of Lower Strathearn. These data coupled with the study and dating of associated environmental changes by pollen and diatom analysis and radiocarbon assay, have enabled graphs of relative sea-level changes and land uplift to be constructed.
