Abstract

The purpose of this investigation is to reconstruct the trend of the early-middle Holocene emergence of western Disko and to point out possible transgression phases during late Holocene. The geomorphology of 3 cuspate forelands at Saqqarliit Ilorliit is described, sediment core data from salt marshes and lagoons are presented, and a RSL curve for western Disko is constructed from published and new C 14 dates. Data are used to suggest and discuss a possible sequence of Holocene RSL changes
