Short summary
Coastal deposits can help us reconstruct the timing of climate-induced changes in the rates of past landscape evolution. In this study, we show that consistent ages for Holocene beach shorelines can be obtained by dating driftwood deposits. This finding is surprising, as the wood travels long distances through river systems before reaching the Arctic Ocean. The possibility to establish precise age control is a prerequisite to further investigate the regional drivers of long-term coastal change.
