Abstract

At the beginning of the Holocene the inner parts of the Congo shelf were covered by clear and relatively warm waters. About 12,000 yr BP deposits show a high carbonate content. Sedimentation rates have decreased from 2-3 m to 0.07-0.3 m per 1000 years. A curve of relative sea levels changes is given.
