Abstract

During the late Holocene, mean sea level (MSL) reached a maximum elevation at approximately + 0.1 m. It remained above the present MSL from between 6000 and 5500 yr B.P. until at least 1200 yr B.P. The area investigated seems to have been tectonically quite stable during the late Holocene. A local curve of MSL variations may be representative of the regional eustatic pattern
