The test site is located in Northern Jutland on the outskirts of Aalborg (Grinsted), Denmark on a marine plain formed during the Yoldia
transgression period, in connection with the ice retreat from Northern Jutland (approximately 13,000-9,000 years B.
Age determination and growth analysis based on external growth rings of the protobranch bivalve Yoldia
notabilis Yokoyama in Otsuchi Bay, northeastern Japan.
In the following stages of the Baltic Sea (from the Yoldia
to Limnea seas) the water levels were generally lower than the carbonaceous klint edge and their waters did not affect sedimentation.
The detailed, comprehensive and graphically well-presented environmental section shows the appearance of the Arup site during the Yoldia
regression around 9600 cal.
Radiocarbon ages of the organic deposits formed during Yoldia
regression and Ancylus transgression (73 dates) vary significantly: from 8440 [+ or -] 70 (TA-263) to 9980 [+ or -] 120 (Tln-2349) at Joelahtme (Appendix 1).

notabilis Yokoyama in Otsuchi Bay, Northeastern Japan.
limatula, a group of suspension-feeding marine clams, and Nereis diversicolor, a predatory marine polychaete will be added to sediment microcosms and a series of scans performed to determine how the infauna alters porosity.
Mineva (1964) examined 190 stomachs of Alaska plaice in the eastern Bering Sea and found the following important prey items: bivalves such as Yoldia
Sea (Heinsalu & Veski 2007), Ancylus Lake (Veski 1998; Saarse et al.
2007) and the protobranch Yoldia
eightsi (Abele et al.
The Holocene is represented by the Yoldia
Sea and Ancylus Lake deposits (mIVy + LIVan) (Raukas & Teedumae 1997).
The southern parts of the basin were at first connected through narrow straits to the Yoldia
Sea (Kemilainen 1982; Miettinen 1996; Tikkanen & Oksanen 2002), but rapid land uplift turned the straits into outlet channels, forming this way the Pielinen ice-dammed lake.
