Modelled changes in tidal range during the mid‐ to late Holocene in eastern England suggest that the calculated rate of land subsidence is overestimated unless such changes are quantified. The effect is most significant for large coastal lowlands, the Fenland and Humber (ca. and mm yr −1), that were tidal embayments during the mid Cited by: The World Atlas of Holocene Sea Changes by P.A.

The author begins with an extensive introduction to the subject, covering the historical background and the possible causes of sea-level changes and.

Hortonb a Environmental Research Centre, Department of Geography, University of Durham, South Road, Durham, DH1 3LE, UK b Department of Earth and Environmental Science, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, , USA Abstract Holocene sea-level reconstructions exist from many locations in the Indo-Pacific. A major point of discussion at that time centered on whether or not the post-glacial marine transgression followed a smooth versus a fluctuating curve that reflected world-wide sea level changes (e.g., Shepard and Suess, ; Fairbridge, , ).

Absolute sea-level changeThe pattern of absolute sea-level change at the end of the ice age has been difficult to establish, principally because it is difficult to find stable r, new approaches using oxygen isotopes from deep-sea cores are beginning to provide an indication of global sea-level trends during the period.

The Holocene provides students, researchers and lay-readers with the remarkable story of how the natural world has been transformed since the end of the last Ice Age aro years ago.

This period has witnessed a shift from environmental changes determined by natural forces to those dominated by human actions, including those of climate and greenhouse by: Skip to main content.
