Abstract

A database of radiocarbon dates from Late Holocene fluvial environments in Spain was critically analysed in order to obtain a fluvial chronology for this period. The principal types of depositional represented in the record were slackwater flood deposits, alluvial overbank facies and alluvial channel facies. The sedimentary context of each date was classified in order to identify those samples that specifically dated change in the fluvial environment. The results indicate that in Mediterranean regions slackwater flood deposits are valuable archives of climatic variability even during periods of increased human impact
