Abstract

The evolution of paleo-Changjiang incised-valley fills in relation to step-like, postglacial sea-level rises is presented, based on sedimentary facies analyses and 14C age dating on three sediment cores. Timing of rapid transgressions deduced from the succession of incised-valley fills correlate well with Barbados's very rapid, sea-level rise periods. By contrast, estuarine deposits aggraded actively, and the coastline did not retreat markedly during the Younger Dryas (YD) cooling event when the rising rate decelerated considerably relative to stages before and after the YD.
