Record #112056:

Evidence from south west Iceland of low sea level in Early Flandrian times / Kjartan Thors, Gudhrún Helgadóttir.

Title: Evidence from south west Iceland of low sea level in Early Flandrian times / Kjartan Thors, Gudhrún Helgadóttir.
Author(s): Thors, Kjartan.
Helgadóttir, Gudhrún.
Date: 1991.
Publisher: Dordrecht: Kluwer Academic
In: Environmental change in Iceland : past and present. (1991.),
Abstract: Erosional unconformity and drowned coastal features observed in seismic profiles indicate former sea level 30 to 35 m below present. Radiocarbon dating combined with other evidence indicates that low sea level occurred after very rapid regression of ice in Early Flandrian. Suggests that unusually rapid postglacial isostatic rebound due to low viscosity of crust and upper mantle was responsible for anomalous sea-level history.
