A non‐uniform glacio‐isostatic uplift can result in differential uplift for different parts of a lake. If the lake outlet is situated in the area of the greatest rate of uplift, then remote parts of the lake will be continuously transgressed. Ancient lake levels can be estimated by dating transgressed peat at different depths in such lakes. Four lakes in southern Sweden have been investigated using this method and the course of the glacio‐isostatic uplift has been determined empirically. The… 

Shore-level displacement in Fennoscandia calculated from empirical data

Abstract Shore-level displacement and glacio-isostatic uplift in the area affected by the Scandinavian ice is calculated from empirical data. Besides 79 shore-level curves from Scandinavia the

Coastal and Terrestrial Impact of the Isostatically Forced Late Quaternary Drainage Divide Shift, Penobscot and Kennebec Rivers, Maine, USA

Abstract Marine features associated with Late Quaternary isostatic adjustment are well documented in central and coastal Maine, United States. However, the effects of glacially induced land-surface

Holocene land uplift and its influence on fire history and ecosystem development in boreal Sweden

Abstract Lake Uddjaur in northern Sweden was formed as a consequence of non-uniform glacio-isostatic uplift in which a forested valley was gradually flooded and high elevation areas became islands.

Holocene sea-level variation and spit development: data from Skagen Odde, Denmark

Extensivxe exposures of peat located in initer-ridge swales, at the contact between beach anid oxerlyiing coastal dune deposits at Skagen Odde. northern Denmark, provide a record of spit development

Effects of Mesolithic hunter-gatherers on local vegetation in a non-uniform glacio-isostatic land uplift area, northern Sweden

Abstract The oldest early Mesolithic settlements found so far (i.e. 8600 b.p.) in the interior of northern Sweden, in the province of Norrbotten, have been discovered through the application of a

Past and Current Climate Change

This section describes long-term observed climatic changes in atmospheric parameters. The focus is on surface climate conditions, but changes in atmospheric circulation are discussed as they often

Empirical estimation of isostatic uplift using the lake-tilting method at lake Fegen and lake Säven, southwestern Sweden

AbstractA nonuniform glacio-isostatic uplift results in differential uplift for different parts of a lake. If the lake outlet is situated in the area with the greatest rate of uplift, then the lake

Past and present uplift in Sweden: Glacial isostasy, tectonism and bedrock influence

Abstract Recent studies in Sweden of the classical Fennoscandian uplift have revealed many new facts. The past and present uplift is affected by old fault lines and bedrock seams. The

Rheology of Mantle and Lithosphere Inferred from Post-Glacial Uplift in Fennoscandia

The earth’s response to glacial loading/unloading offers exceptional promise for the study of the physical properties of the lithosphere and mantle because aspects of the isostatic adjustment are

Glacial rebound and relative sea-level variations: a new appraisal

Summary. Late Pleistocene and Holocene changes in sea-level at technically stable shorelines contain information on the melting history of the ice sheets and on the response of the Earth to changes

A model for Devensian and Flandrian glacial rebound and sea-level change in Scotland

The Late Devensian and Flandrian deglaciation of Great Britain produces a complex pattern of sea-level change for Scotland because of the rebound of the region when the load is removed, because of

Global Changes in Postglacial Sea Level: A Numerical Calculation

The ICE-3G Model of Late Pleistocene Deglaciation: Construction, Verification, and Applications

A refined model of late Pleistocene deglaciation has been constructed by employing a large set (192) of 14C controlled time series of relative sea level change from sites that were covered by ice at

Secular Sea-Level Change

Sea-level change as recorded by tide gauges exhibits a complex spatial and temporal variability for a number of reasons, including tectonic movements of changes in ocean volume and the adjustment of

Late Pleistocene and Holocene sea‐level change in the Australian region and mantle rheology

SUMMARY Spatial and temporal variations in sea-level are produced by the melting of the Late Pleistocene ice and by the Earth's response to the redistribution in surface loads. By examining
