Abstract

Radiocarbon data from Neolithic sites, chenier ramparts, peaty deposits, and submarine sediments converge to suggest that oscillations of sea level have occured| they also suggest that the lowest glacial sea levels probably occured between 22,000 and 19,000 yr BP. Calculation of the volume of the Yangtze River Delta, together with C dates, indicates that more than 89 % of the solid particles carried by the river were deposited in the delta. Due to the sedimentary load, the crust beneath the delta has subsided isostatically and tilted seaward.
