Early and middle Holocene sea-level data from Belgium p lo t ca. 2 m above data from the western Netherlands, reflecting differential tectonic and isostatic movements. The total uplift rate of Belgium relative to the western Netherlands decays gradually from 0.66 m kyr' at 7500 cal. yr BP to less than 0.25 m kyr' since 5000 cal. yr BP. The tectonic component of this relative movement, inferred from Eemian sea-level data, is in the order of 0.06 to 0.16 m kyr' . The isostatic component of the… CONTINUE READING
