Proske, Ulrike; Hanebuth, Till J.J.; Meggers, Helge; Leroy, Suzanne A.G.


The area around the Tidra Island is a complex and highly dynamic clastic tidal flat system. The character of the northern part of this area is outlined, together with its sedimentary changes through time and the different depositional environments that shaped this coastal area in the last centuries are reconstructed. The multi-proxy approach together with 14C-dating has led to the identification of four main types of deposits using the modern facies distribution as an analogue:(a)A ∼800-440 cal...[Show more]
