Abstract

Two new sections have been discovered in the River Neva Valley, which connects Lake Ladoga with the Gulf of Finland of the Baltic Sea. The radiocarbon dates, as well as pollen and diatom analyses of the new sections, support previous ideas that the connection between Lake Ladoga and the Gulf of Finland opened as a result of the last great rise of the lake level, which was named the ladoga transgression. The evidence from the River Neva also confirms that there was no connection in this area between the Baltic Sea and lake Ladoga at the time of the Ancylus Lake, because of the existence of uninterrupted peat deposition from Preboreal time
