Abstract

The AA. examine the chronological, sedimentological and geochemical characteristics of one of the principal Verlorenvlei cores (GDV1), extracted at Groodrift, 15 km from the present day vlei mouth, with a view to adding weight to the major conclusion drawn from pollen analysis: progressive phases of human-induced land use change have dominated the recent environmental history of Verlorenvlei, and have overtaken sea-level change as the major local determinant of vegetation in and around the site during the past 300 years
