A shore displacement curve based on earlier and new data for the Lyfjorden area Kvaløya (Main shore line= 30 m a.s.I) is constructed. Stratigraphical studies show early Holocene terrestrial sediments (8350 ± 90 YBP) approximately 10 m below the altitude of the maximum Tapes shore level. The early Holocene regression rate was at )east 1.25 m/100 yrs, whilst the following Tapes transgression rate was about 0.5 ml 100 yrs.
