Description :
The goal of this paper is to describe Holocene relative sea-level changes at an arctic coast in mid West Greenland; especially focusing on the development during the last 3 ka. To avoid the uncertainties of traditional emergence curve construction, a new morphostratigraphy based on high precision surveying of the coastal morphology is introduced. The word morphostratigraphy exclusively indicates that landform units are the basis of the stratigraphy.
