Recent research on the temporal and spatial course of the late Holocene, relative displacements of land and sea in the coastal area of the Southwestern Baltic Sea have proved that in this period the sea level has clearly risen in phases to its present level rather than uninterrruptedly. The oscillations were first characterised by the delaying of the transgression progress (5500 B.P.), then by stagnation (4000-3000 B.P.), and in the last 2000 years by regression. With reference to the results of Moerner's research work (1971) in the Scandinavian area of elevation, it can be deduced that the eustatic component of the rise of the Baltic Sea has become more apparent recently, while the intensity of the isostatic depression of the continent has receded.
