Flandrian sea-level changes on the south coast of England

Sutherland, Fiona Margaret Jean (1984) Flandrian sea-level changes on the south coast of England. Masters thesis, Durham University.



The South Coast of England is one of the few remaining areas in the British Isles where there is a relatively United knowledge of past sea levels. Five sites were investigated in the present study for evidence of past sea-level movements. These were at The Moors in Dorset, Studland Heath in Dorset, Browndown in Hampshire, Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight and Pett Level in East Sussex. Indications of sea-level movement were gained from the stratigraphic, pollen and diatom analyses at the sites. A series of phases of positive and negative sea-level tendencies, over the last 10,000 years, are presented at each site. These are correlated, within a regional setting, with other sites from the South Coast of England.
