This dataset accompanies the paper "Holocene relative sea-level change along the tectonically active Chilean coast" (Garrett et al., 2020) and contains sea-level index points and limiting points from the Chilean coastline between 18.5 and 43.6 degrees South. The database is formatted in accordance with the guidelines set out by the HOLSEA project ( The Excel document contains three tabs: 1. the complete long-form database, 2. the short-form summary, and 3. the summary of radiocarbon samples.
