Paper questions fluctuation

palsea aug 18A new paper from PAGES' PALSEA working group questions the occurrence of a rapid sea-level fluctuation within the Last Interglacial.

Authors, led by the group's next phase co-leader Natasha Barlow, synthesize published geomorphological and stratigraphic indicators from the Last Interglacial, and find no evidence for ice-sheet regrowth within the warm interglacial climate.

They also identify uncertainties in the interpretation of local relative sea-level data that underpin the reconstructions of global mean sea level.
