The North American Late Wisconsin ice sheet and mantle viscosity from glacial rebound analyses

Lambeck, Kurt; Purcell, Anthony; Zhao, Jason


Observations of sea level and crustal response to glacial loading cycles provide constraints on the mantle rheology function, E, and as well as on the ice load, I, with the latter being largely free from a-priori glaciological or climate assumptions and appropriate, therefore, for testing any such hypotheses. This paper presents new results for both continental-mantle E and I for the Late Wisconsin ice sheet, using geological evidence for relative sea-level change (rsl) and tilting of...[Show more]
