Abstract [en]

Interstadial and non-glacial stadial sediments collected in boreholes from Sokli in northeastern Finland have been dated by optically stimulated luminescence on quartz and feldspar grains. The quartz OSL ages follow stratigraphic order, with one exception, and support the litho- and biostratigraphical correlation with the NW European mainland climate-stratigraphy and the marine oxygen-isotope stages. Feldspar IRSL dates generally overestimate the age, probably due to incomplete bleaching.

The data show that during the last glacial cycle northeastern Finland was not glaciated until MIS 5b, around 90 ka. Interstadial conditions occurred around ~94 ka (MIS 5c), ~74-80 ka (MIS 5a) and 42-54 ka (MIS 3).

The OSL ages have large standard errors mainly due to small sample sizes, relatively poor luminescence characteristics and uncertainties in dose-rate determinations.
