Postglacial Relative Sea-Level Change in the Canadian Arctic

Sea-level changes

Researcher:  Dr Norm Catto

Examining the geological postglacial evidence from Beaufort Sea to Baffin Bay has shown a change in relative sea-level (RSL) change.  This change in RSL has occured because of the deglaciation of the continent. As the glaciers began to melt away and evaporate an immense weight was taken of the land.  By examining the interior and coastal landscape we can better understand the effects of climate change.
