The recent history of the Antarctic ice sheet : constraints from sea-level change

Zwartz, Daniel Peter

Description

The rheology of the earth and the history of ice sheets, which have a major contributing role in climate change, are both subjects of considerable interest in earth sciences, and the study of sea-level change provides insight into both. Sea-level change since the last glacial maximum (LGM), about 18,000 years ago, can be explained as the sum of three contributions: the sea-level rise due to melting of the Pleistocene ice sheets; the isostatic and gravitational response to the melting of...[Show more]
