The seven seismic units recognized in the Molengraaff paleo-delta on the Sunda Shelf underlying the postglacial unit can be interpreted as prograding shelf-margin lowstand wedges deposited during forced regressions. Speculative age estimates of these units were made by correlating the interpreted lowstand wedges with the SPECMAP δ18Ocurve. This correlation suggests that the oldest unit reaches back to 570 ka, that the mean sedimentation rates during glacial times are comparable to modern prodelta rates, and that the tectonic subsidence rate of the outermost shelf depressions during the latest Pleistocene was of the order of 27 cm/kyr. Subsidence (which...
