Abstract

The fieldwork described here is part of a larger study of paleoclimate, sea level change and environmental history of K’gari and Cooloola Sand Mass (Ellerton et al., 2018, 2020; Kelly et al., 2019; McSweeney and Shulmeister, 2018; Miot da Silva and Shulmeister, 2016; Patton, Ellerton, and Shulmeister, 2019). The beach ridge sequence at Moon Point (Figure 1c,d) was selected for our research on connections between Holocene sea-level change and K’gari’s evolution, and therefore sampled for OSL (Optically Stimulated Luminescence) chronology, soil characteristics and foraminifera content (Figure 2b,c).
