The majority of research presented in this volume arises from the Land-Ocean Evolution Perspecitve Study (LOEPS), which was one component of the Land-Ocean Interaction Study (LOIS – funded by the Natural Environment Research Council).The main aim of LOEPS was to describe the evolution of coastal systems from the Holocene to the Present, in response to changes in relative sea level and the impact of human activities.A key element in the success of LOEPS has been the integration and interaction between the various elements of the research programme. The papers published here reflect this integration rather than summarizing the results of individual research projects or the achievement of a single LOEPS objective.The contributions fall into four sections: techniques; Humber catchment; other areas within the studied region; regional scale analysis.

Provisional Contents. An introduction to Holocene land-ocean interaction and environmental change around the western North Sea • Analysis and interpretation of Holocene sedimentary sequences in the Humber Estuary • Implications of a microfossil-based transfer function in Holocene sea-level studies • Luminescence dating of fine-grain Holocene sediments from a coastal setting • The development of a methodology for luminescence dating of Holocene sediments at the land-ocean interface • Holocene environmental change in the Yorkshire Ouse basin and its influence on river dynamics and sediment fluxes to the coastal zone • The Holocene evolution of the Humber Estuary: reconstructing change in a dynamic environment • Holocene sediment storage in the Humber Estuary • Origin, abundance and storage of organic carbon and sulphur in the Holocene Humber Estuary, emphasising human impact on storage changes • Sediment provenance and flux in the Tees Estuary: the record from the Late Norfolk, eastern UK: climate and sea-level changes as possible forcing agents for dune initiation • Sedimentary evolution of the Norfolk barrier coastline in the context of Holocene sea-elevel change • Holocene sedimentary evolution and palaeo-coastlines of the Fenland embayment, eastern England • Holocene isostasy and relative sea-level on the east coast of England • Modelling western North Sea palaeogeographies and tidal changes during Holocene • Index
