The anatomy of interglacial sea level: The relationship between sea levels and ice volumes during the Last Interglacial

Purcell, Anthony; Dutton, Andrea; Lambeck, Kurt


The elevations and chronology of interglacial shorelines and other sea-level indicators provide information on ice volumes for these earlier periods compared with today. But, as for the Holocene, the relationship between sea levels and ice volumes for earlier interglacials is not simple because of the planet's deformational, gravitational and rotational response to changes in ice-water loads (glacio-hydro isostasy). In particular, the pattern of global sea level for a particular interglacial...[Show more]
