Zur relativen und absoluten Geochronologie der Reliefentwicklung an der Küste des mittleren Südwestafrika

Friedrich Wieneke & Uwe Rust
Results concerning Quaternary geomorphic events in Coastal Namib Desert are presented. We found two high stands and one low stand of the sea level. We obtained radiocarbon dates of Intra-wurm age (ca. 26 000 B.P.) for the younger one of the high stands. This is a eustatic high stand. Late Quaternary tectonic movements of the coastal region have to be considered. The sea level changes are linked to stages of terrestrian morphogenesis. The high stands...
