Shore-level changes in South Norway during the last 13,000 years, traced by biostratigraphical methods and radiometric dating

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Curves intended to reflect general course of the shore-level displacement since the last glaciation are presented for 15 different regions along the coast of South Norway. The curves demonstrate clearly the great differences in late and post-Weichselian shore-level changes from one region to another. The highest marine levels recorded drop from 220 m in the Oslo area, in early Preboreal time, and from less than 10 m in Lista, during the post-Weichselian Tapes transgression maximum. Information on ancient marine shore levels is also given for regions from which complete shore displacement curves have not yet been presented.
