Abstract

This paper examines the stratigraphy and paleoenvironmental implications of a late Pleistocene nonmarine sequence found in three cores from the shelf region. The peats date to 11,300-11,000 yr B.P. and provide a limiting age for the regional Pleistocene-Holocene marine transgression. The insect fossils and pollen spectra suggest a meadow-like graminoid tundra with birch shrubs and some willow shrubs growing in sheltered areas
