Holocene relative sea-level changes in the Qaqortoq area, southern Greenland

Sparrenbom, Charlotte J.; Bennike, Ole; Bjorck, Svante; Lambeck, Kurt


We present results from an investigation of relative sea-level changes in the Qaqortoq area in south Greenland from c. 11 000 cal. yr BP to the present. Isolation and transgression sequences from six lakes and two tidal basins have been identified using stratigraphical analyses, magnetic susceptibility, XRF and macrofossil analyses. Macrofossils and bulk sediments have been dated by AMS radiocarbon dating. Maximum and minimum altitudes for relative sea level are provided from two deglaciation...[Show more]
