AbstractThis study has reconstructed the Holocene relative sea-level history in the relatively tectonically stable Malay Peninsula with two specific objectives: quantifying the sea-level indicative meanings of mangrove sediments and producing new high-quality sea-level index points. In this study, a wetland on the east coast of the Peninsula was extensively surveyed; the elevational relationship between habitat zones and their pollen and diatom assemblages was established; and a number of indicative meanings were precisely quantified for this wetland. This quantified relationship is extrapolated to other coastal sites of the Peninsula for re-calibration of previously published mangrove-based sea-level data. The reconstructed sea-level history from the new and re-calibrated data demonstrates a period of rapid sea-level rise at a rate of 15.8 ± 3.9 mm/a between 10,500 cal a BP at −35.0 ± 4.3 m and 9000 cal a BP at −14.2 ± 1.6 m. The rate of rising sea level was gradually reduced to zero from 9000 to 5000 cal a BP, and by the end of this period the relative sea level reached a highstand of c. 3.3 ± 0.2 m. Over the past 5000 years relative sea level fell to its lowest point at −0.6 ± 0.1 m by 800 cal a BP. This far-field sea-level history has been driven by the global ice-volume change and glacial isostatic adjustment, and it matches well with the modelled ice-volume equivalent sea level.
