The Kattegat Island of Anholt: Sea-Level Changes and Groundwater Formation on an Island

  title={The Kattegat Island of Anholt: Sea-Level Changes and Groundwater Formation on an Island},
  author={Niels Schr{\o}der},
Fluctuations in sea level influence the condition of many coastal groundwater aquifers. A rise in sea level can result in seawater intrusion in areas where the groundwater level is near the present sea level, and it may take a long time for the boundary between salt and fresh groundwater to reach equilibrium after a rapid sea level change. In this paper, the present understanding of the palaeo-hydrology of Anholt and its dependence on the past climate and sea level history will be outlined…

In response to the comment by Hausmann et al. 1 we highlight here that a number of the key criticisms of Lewis et al.2 are either misinterpretations of our paper or are speculative, requiring


Late Quaternary geology of a potential wind-farm area in the Kattegat, southern Scandinavia
Following the proposal of the offshore Anholt wind-farm project with an energy capacity of 400 megawatt in the Kattegat, southern Scandinavia, an evaluation of the geotechnical properties of the
Tests of glacial rebound models for Fennoscandinavia based on instrumented sea‐ and lake‐level records
SUMMARY Evidence for changing sea levels in northwestern Europe related to glacial rebound is found in both the geological record of the past millennia and in the instrumental records of the past two
Groundwater lens dynamics of Atoll Islands
A variable-density groundwater model is used to analyze the effects of various controls on the size of the freshwater lens, the structure of the transition zone, and the propagation of tidal
Absolute sea levels and isostatic changes of the eastern North Sea to central Baltic region during the last 900 years
Most studies of late Holocene sea‐level changes generally assume stable tectonic conditions. However, unrecognized neotectonic ‘noise’, even the small rates of passive continental margins, can

A two-step climatic warming and oceanographic change during the Younger Dryas/Preboreal transition was registered by diatom, foraminiferal, mollusc, lithologic data and sediment accumulation rates in
New evidence of the Littorina transgressions in the Kattegat: Optically Stimulated Luminescence dating of a beach ridge system on Anholt, Denmark
Recent geomorphological and sedimentological investigation of the raised beach ridge plain on Anholt in the Kattegat Sea, Denmark, has demonstrated how these deposits, when combined with Optically
