Sea--level changes since the last glacial maximum have varied considerably from place to place. This book offers a discussion of the main causes of these changes, and of the methods employed to recognise former shorelines. Present--day sea--level trends are covered along with significant sea--level histories, and examples are used to illustrate these areas. The book concludes by showing how these relative sea--level changes can be used to assess trends of tectonic movements, recognise and date seismic displacements, infer climatic changes, and improve geophysical models of the earth s interior.
