In this study, late quaternary transgresional and regression phases of the Burdur Lake has been determined by C-14 Dating. Dreissensia shells from various level coastal deposits of Burdur Lake were collected. These shells were first converted to CO2 with %40 phosphoric acid and then to acetylene and benzene respectively. Then the benzene samples were dated after being counted in a scintillation spectrometer. The ages of the samples were found to be between 12,380-28,452 years B.P. According to these radiocarbon datings it is found that in 25,000-30,000 years B.P. the earlier transgressional deposits of the lake laid down ant 900-910 m, at 25,000-20,000 years B.P. the lake surface reached its highest level of 920-925 m and lowered with oscillations between the years 20,000-10,000 years B.P.
