Abstract

The micropalaeontological content of salt-marsh deposits has successfully recorded the recent sea-level rise, providing a rate of ~22 cm during the 20th century. This is specially significant considering the fact that instrumental sea-level data are very scarce in the southern Bay of Biscay. These results further support the geological-based sea-level research in the European Atlantic coast.
