Abstract

The sea level fluctuation that took place in the last three decades of Ninetieth Century - played an important role in the evolution and formation of Brazilian coastal plains. In the beginning, only geomorphological criterion has been used in its study. Any way, before and around 1960 only few investigation existed concerning the sea level fluctuation in the Quaternary. Starting on 1974 a large number of worker engaged in such investigation, particularly concerning sea fluctuation during last 7,000 years, along southeastern and southern coasts. Such studies have been carried based on sedimentological and biological evidences. Dating of past sea levels relative to the present one has been obtained from incrustation of gastropods and from fossilized Callichirus tubes in the hydrodynamical sediments structures. The position of some of the old sambaquis relative the actual sea coast line also has been used to infer relative sea level in the past. In the last 7,000 years organic materials have been found and dated by radiocarbon method. In the period prior to 7,000 years , in few cases the radioactivity method has been used, but anyway not enough absolute dating could be carried out. Specially for before and around 120.000 years BP no dating result of coastal plain sediments or other materials is available.In the present work we propose to carry out an extensive dating of sediments from terraces, barriers and sea dunes in the sea coast of Paraná, Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul states, using OSL, TL and EPR methods and correlate with sea level fluctuations in the Quaternary.
