Holocene sea-level changes along the Mediterranean coast of Israel, based on archaeological observations and numerical model

Sivan, Dorit; Wdowinski, S; Galili, E; Raban, A.; Lambeck, Kurt


Local sea-level curves reflect global eustatic changes, regional isostatic adjustments of the crust to changing ice and ocean volumes and tectonically controlled crustal movements. In this study, we evaluate the relative contribution of each of these factors to the Holocene sea-level curve of the Mediterranean coast of Israel. We use archaeological data as constraints on palaeo sea levels and we then compare the observational limits with isostatic models for sea-level change across the region....[Show more]
