A high-resolution seismic profile was obtained using a Chirp sub-bottom profiler. Following deglaciation, rapid sedimenetation of glaciomarine sediments is interpreted to alternative with periods of erosion during times of low-sea level and changed coastal current patterns. A paleo-landslide is recoreded along one such channel. During the Holocene, more horizontal layering developed and sedimentation decreased markedly.
