Automatic inference of ice models from postglacial sea-level observations: Theory and application to the British Isles

Johnston, Paul; Lambeck, Kurt

Description

Late Pleistocene and Holocene sea level change is caused mostly by melting of ice sheets since the Last Glacial Maximum and the Earth's delayed uplift in response to changes in the surface load. Records of sea level change therefore contain information on Earth rheology and ice sheet history and have been used to constrain ice and Earth models. A method is presented which finds an ice model that simultaneously fits the sea level record and the constraints on ice elevation. It infers the ice...[Show more]
