Massey, Anthony C.; Gehrels, W. Roland; Charman, Dan J.; Milne, Glenn A.; Peltier, W.R.; Lambeck, Kurt; Selby, Katherine A.


Previous sea-level studies suggest that southwest Britain has the fastest subsiding coastline in the United Kingdom, but tide-gauge data, GPS and gravity measurements and geophysical models show little evidence of anomalous subsidence in this region. In this paper we present 15 new sea-level index points from four coastal barrier systems in south Devon. Eight are from compaction-free basal sediments and others were corrected for autocompaction. Our data suggest that relative sea level along the...[Show more]
