Summary
Abstract: The Relative Sea Level Database covers sea level data from
the present time back to 14,000 years before the present. The authors
compiled the database from numerous published sources in addition to
their own field work. Methodology for establishing relative sea level
histories varies between sites and investigators, but typically
entails geomorphologic methods to identify relict shoreline ... View entire text
