Die interglazialen marinen Strände und der Aufbau des antarktischen Inlandeises

Paul Woldstedt

Abstract. The interglacial marine beaches (Sicilian, Milazzian etc.) are mostly explained as signs of ancient higher ocean levels. But where we can prove the height of ancient ocean levels, this is not very different from the present one. The ancient beaches cannot be explained by sinking of the ocean level, but only by rise of the continents. Thus they are really „raised beaches".
