Constraints on the Greenland ice sheet since the Last Glacial Maximum from sea-level observations and glacial-rebound models.

Fleming, Kevin; Lambeck, Kurt

Description

Geomorphological descriptions of changes in the extent of the Greenland Ice Sheet (GIS) have been combined with glacial-isostatic-adjustment models to reproduce the sea-level history of Greenland since the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM). The contribution to past sea-level change around Greenland due to ice-load changes outside of that region has been considerable (± 10's of meters), while still contributing a rise of several mm yr-1 today. The isostatic contribution to relative sea level around...[Show more]
