Abstract

In sediment cores from four small basins from 44 to 26 m above sea-level, the boundaries between marine, brackish and lacustrine sediments are precisely identified through their distinct diatom stratigraphy. In all basins the diatom successions demonstrate a development from marine to lacustrine environments. The basins today being lakes or bogs, were isolated from the sea between 12400 and 9200 BP, at the end of the Late Weichselian. The emergence was fast during the Bolling and Allerod and slower during the younger Dryas. The slow emergence was probably a main reason for the formation of the morphological distinct younger Dryas shoreline.
