A curve of the relative sea level during the Holocene in Uruguay was constructed based on data from beach storm deposits. The error envelope was too great to register small but significant oscillations, but the number of points used and the coincidence between our data and those from the literature show that in Uruguay the sea level was above the present level approximately 6000 yr BP and has been declining since then. The non-parametric smoothing technique used favours a smooth declining sea level curve similar to that proposed for the coast of Brazil (different slope).
► We constructed a relative sea level curve for the Holocene of Uruguay, ► It was constructed on the basis of beach storm deposits. ► The curve is smoothly declining since around 6400 calculated yr AP.
