Abstract

We provide a short report on the final year of the INQUA Shorelines Subcommission on Western Europe (2002-3). This includes a review of activities under four themes: sea-level changes in the next century; sea-level changes along a north-south transect from the uplifting coasts of Fennoscandanvia to the subsiding coasts of the North Sea and the Baltic, and the meta stable areas such as Portugal and France; comparisons between modeled and empirical observations of relative sea-level (RSL) change, and palaeo-tsunami and storm records. We conclude by providing a report on the final 2002 Annual Meeting including its field meeting at Greifswald and Mecklenburg - West Pomerania and provide a list of some recent publications by members of the INQUA Shorelines Subcommission.
