Abstract

Sediments from basins indicate a lithostratigraphy representative of an isolation from the sea during Late Weichselian. Diatom analysis was used to determine salinity changes, which were dated by pollen analysis and the radiocarbon method. The area was deglaciated in the Early Bolling and a regression of about 5 m followed. A transgression of more than 10 m started in Late Bolling and terminated in middle Younger Dryas, with a transgression maximum between 38,2 and 40 m above present sea-level. All the investigated basins were finally isolated in Late Younger Dryas/Early Preboreal during a rapid regression.
