Lithological and biostratigraphical studies, including studies of pollen, foraminifera and molluscs, together with amino acid analysis, radiocarbon datings and Uranium-Thorium datings of the deposits in a 21 m section with marine beds and tills at Bø on Karmøy gave the following main stratigraphical results: Haugesund Stadial: 6 m unit of clayey till and 5 m of tectonized marine beds (late Weichselian and possibly late Middle Weichselian). Bø Interstadial: 5 m unit of marine sand and gravel with a cool climate fauna and flora (early Middle Weichselian or late Early Weichselian). Karmøy Stadial: 1,5 sandy, gravelly till with large striated boulders and 1 m tectonized marine beds. Torvastad Interstadial: 0,5 m brown organical sand with a cool-climate flora and fauna (early Weichselian). Avaldsnes Interglacial: 3 m yellow marine sand with a warm climate fauna and flora (Eemian).
