Sea-Level Change in the Irish Sea since the Last Glacial Maximum: Constraints from isostatic modelling

Lambeck, Kurt; Purcell, Anthony

Description

Models of glacio-hydroisostatic sea-level change have been published for the British Isles that are broadly consistent with the observational evidence, as well as with glaciological constraints. It has been argued, however, that the models fail to represent sea-level change along the Irish Sea margins and in southern Ireland for the post-deglaciation period. The argument rests on the interpretation of the depositional environment of the elevated 'Irish Sea Drift' on both sides of the Irish Sea:...[Show more]
