Abstract

The AA. interpret the region's coastal depositional environments in the light of a geological model of Holocene environmental change recognising the interacting roles of Holocene sea-level change, alluvial responses to sea-level fluctuation, and tidal environment sedimentation. The coastal sediments overlie a Pleistocene land surface, and represent the Holocene marine transgression and regression. Four main sedimentary units are recognised. They represent four dominant inferred depositional environments : tide-influenced distributary channels; undifferentiated tidal flats; intertidal flats with mangrove swamp; and floodplain
