The Holocene Marine Transgression in the Region of the North Frisian Islands

Dietrich Hoffmann
To demonstrate the diverse Holocene development in the region of the North Frisian Islands, the sedimentary sequence of the coastal Holocene in the area of Sylt and Pellworm is compared. Near Sylt, the deposits which do not exceed 10 m can be subdivided into three sedimentary units. During the last 2000 years, the surface of the marsh was higher than MHW. Its extension was however decreased by erosion. In the area of Pellworm, although the...
