Global sea-level fluctuations during the Last Interglaciation (MIS 5e)
The geomorphology and morphostratigraphy of numerous worldwide sites reveal the relative movements of sea level during the peak of the Last Interglaciation (Marine Isotope Stage (MIS) 5e, assumedExpand

Ice melt, sea level rise and superstorms: evidence from paleoclimate data, climate modeling, and modern observations that 2 °C global warming could be dangerous
Abstract. We use numerical climate simulations, paleoclimate data, and modern observations to study the effect of growing ice melt from Antarctica and Greenland. Meltwater tends to stabilize theExpand

Revision of the late Pleistocene stratigraphy of Bermuda
The Quaternary stratigraphy of Bermuda is one of the world's most complete sedimentary records of interglacial highstands, representing at least the past million years. Yet in terms of the lastExpand

Aminostratigraphy and ages of Pleistocene limestones of Bermuda
The Pleistocene stratigraphy of Bermuda offers important information for sea-level history. Corals are rare in Bermuda Pleistocene carbonates, and so many deposits are not appropriate for U-seriesExpand

Departures from eustasy in Pliocene sea-level records
Estimates for sea level three million years ago, a period with similar atmospheric CO2 levels to today, vary from 10 to 40 m above present. Glacial isostatic adjustment modelling suggests thatExpand

A +20 m middle Pleistocene sea-level highstand (Bermuda and the Bahamas) due to partial collapse of Antarctic ice
Marine deposits at +20 ± 3 m on the tectonically stable coastlines of Bermuda and the Bahamas support the hypothesis of a partial collapse of the Antarctic ice sheet during the middle Pleistocene.Expand

Stratigraphy and timing of eolianite deposition on Rottnest Island, Western Australia
Over 100 whole-rock amino acid racemization (AAR) ratios from outcrops around Rottnest Island (32.0° S Latitude near Perth) indicate distinct pulses of eolian deposition during the late Quaternary.Expand

Ice Sheet Collapse Following a Prolonged Period of Stable Sea Level during the Last Interglacial
Sea level during the last interglacial period reached a peak of between 5 and 9 m above the present-day level. A detailed reconstruction of sea level and isostatic rebound from Western AustraliaExpand

Rapid sea level and climate change at the close of the Last Interglaciation (MIS 5e): evidence from the Bahama Islands
The geology of the Last Interglaciation (sensu stricto, marine isotope substage (MIS) 5e) in the Bahamas records the nature of sea level and climate change. After a period of quasi-stability for mostExpand

History of Stage 5 Sea Level in Bermuda: Review with New Evidence of a Brief Rise to Present Sea Level During Substage 5a
Abstract Oxygen-isotope Substage 5e is represented by the Devonshire Formation in Bermuda. The occurrence of these coastal-marine deposits to about 5 m indicates Pleistocene sea-level data in BermudaExpand
