Abstract

14C datings of whalebone and driftwood samples from Alexandra Land, Franz Josef Land, Russia, indicate deglaciation before 8780 14C years BP. The absence of a prominent beach morphology at the highest marine limit suggests that the sea reached this level during a short period of time, the highest marine limit thus being formed during a transgression ending at 6800 BP.
