Abstract

Three new finite radiocarbon dates suggest that (i) the thermal maximum of the Port Talbot interstadial occurred prior to 47,000 years before the present and (ii) the interstadial deposits were overridden by a glacial advance approximately 44,000 years before the present. To facilitate correlations with other areas, new rock-stratigraphic names are proposed for the Port Talbot type section.
