Abstract

A new series of 19 radiocarbon dates from the Holocene Young Coastal plain in Suriname fits into the picture of a rapid sea-level rise in this area until about 6000 B.P. From 6000 B.P. onward the sea-level remained essentially at its present position. Indication for a higher position of the sea-level at about 6500 B.P. are inconclusive. From about 6500 B.P. onward the marine influence in the interior part of the Young Coastal Plain diminished, but some marine oscillations were registered. The available evidence is too limited to permit pertinent conclusions about the regional occurrence of marine fluctuations. From an analysis of the younger Holocene development in the Hertenrits area it is concluded that a new subdivision has to be established for understanding of these marine oscillations.
