A submerged beach bordering the North Sea Plateau towards the Norwegian Trench has been traced for more than 100 km at water depths of about 150 m (at 61°15'N), decreasing slightly to the south. The formation of this strandline is tentatively dated to 12,000 years B.P. by correlation with a radiocarbon age for shell material in sand from the British sector.
