Rutherford, M.; Flather, Roger; Wingfield, R; Horton, Ben; McArthur, J; Innes, Jim; Lloyd, J; Lambeck, Kurt


Analysis of sea-level data from the east coast of England identifies local-scale and regional scale factors to explain spatial and temporal variations in the altitude of Holocene sea-level index points. The isostatic effect of the glacial rebound process, including both the ice (glacio-isostatic) and water (hydro-isostatic) load contributions, explains regional-scale differences between eight areas: c. 20 m range at 8 cal. ka BP and by 4 cal. ka BP relative sea-level in Northumberland was above...[Show more]
