These plates enable a visual assessment of geological trends in sea-level during the Holocene to be made.Comparing this data with trends deduced from tide gauges and near-future trends predicted by climate models, should enable more accurate assessment of near future sea-level changes on a local scale. This timely study is concerned with the current record of sea-level changes during the past 10,000 years; their rates, and our ability to estimate these changes accurately. This comprehensive work contains data and interpretations of value to all those with an interest in regional geography, climatology, sea-level change, and environmental science.. The author begins with an extensive introduction to the subject, covering the historical background and the possible causes of sea-level changes and the
Although locally significant changes in relative sea level rise can occur, depending on varying degrees of dewatering of different types of sediments and their depositional history, this book will provide a good overall guidance to evaluate the effects of overall subsidence and ice melting.Geo-Marine LettersThe "Atlas" is a thorough and very useful compendium of existing data and, given the extensive bibliography, a good starting point for future research.Geo-Marine LettersThe book should prove to be a valuable reference work for a wide variety of scientific pursuits involving coral reefs.Reef Encounter/International Society for Reef StudiesThis book is, of course, of the greatest importance for all studies related to coastal evolution and coastal stability. Lee C. GerhardOverall, this book is a valuable library addition and a source for both information and references I believe that all earth science libraries should have this volume for geologists and
Sea Level Rise history in the last 10,000 years This is a very technical book on Sea Level Rise,SLR, that clear a lots of myths. I would not recommend it to the general public I am glad that I have read it to better understand the history of SLR.
