Özet

Beachrocks, which rapidly form along intertidal zones by early carbonate cementation, can be used in Holocene sea level change and neotectonic studies, as their formation requires vertical stabilization of the shoreline. In this paper, three generations of beachrocks at different depths between Finike and the Syrian border are C-14 dated and a mid-Holocene to recent sea level change history is tentatively proposed.
