- ItemLast integral shorelines in the South Cape(Bernard Price Institute for Palaeontological Research, 1980) Davies, OliverMy paper discusses the Last Interglacial shorelines of the South Cape with reference to findings from the rest of the world. I call them Eemian shorelines, and define Eem as an interglacial with three peaks of sea level separated by two stadials when the ocean dropped. I use the term Eem though it has been wrongly applied in north-west Europe (Kukla 1977). Other names have been given to this interglacial; in the deep-ocean record the stage is referred to as Stage X or Stage 5. It has been dated mostly by Uranium/Thorium as lasting from about 125 000 to 80 000 B.P. The dates and the fluctuations will be discussed below
