Glacial isostatic adjustment and the radial viscosity profile from inverse modeling

Kaufmann, Georg; Lambeck, Kurt


A formal inverse procedure is used to infer radial mantle viscosity profiles from several observations related to the glacial isostatic adjustment process. The data sets consist of Late Pleistocene and Holocene sea level data from Scandinavia, the Barents Sea, Central Europe, Canada, and the far field, as well as observations of changes in the Earth's rotation and gravitational field, and present-day uplift and gravity changes in Scandinavia. Inferences of mantle viscosity are robust against...[Show more]
