Late Devensian and Holocene records of relative sea-level changes in northwest Scotland and their implications for glacio-hydro-isostatic modelling
Raised tidal marshes and isolation basins (lakes that were once connected to the sea) in northwest Scotland record changes in relative sea level following deglaciation during the Late Devensian to the present. The Kentra to Arisaig area, which was covered by relatively thick ice (c. 900 m) at the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM), shows a regression from a marine limit between 36.5 m OD and 40 m OD at c. 15.9 kyr cal BP (range 15.6 16.3 kyr cal BP) through to an early-Holocene minimum. A range of...[Show more]
