Journal Article
Marriott, S. B., Spencer, C. D., Woodland, W. A., Hill, T. C., Hill, T. C. B., Woodland, W., …Marriott, S. (2007). Holocene sea-level change in the Severn Estuary, southwest England: A diatom-based sea-level transfer function for macrotidal settings. Holocene, 17(5), 639-648. https://doi.org/10.1177/0959683607078988

The recent growth in the use of microfossil-based transfer functions in late-Quaternary sea-level reconstructions reflects their potential to accurately quantify palaeo sea-level changes. This study details the development of a diatom-based sea-level...
