Abstract

Sea-level research in several submerging coastal regions has traditionally been based on C 14 dating of basal peats, but this approach contains 2 sources of uncertainty. Accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) opens new perspectives for this type of sea-level research, as illustrated by a paleoecological and AMS C 14 study of basal peats from a small study area in the Rhine-Meuse delta (Netherlands), where previous (conventional) work revealed highly problematic results. The new results further enable a revision of Holocene (ground)water gradient lines. A knickpoint in these gradient lines can be related to the effect of faulting
