Caption: Scientist Anthony Long of the Durham University Geography Department looking at glacial marine sediments near Ilulissat in Greenland in his study of isostatic rebound, or how land rises after the weight of ice is removed. An understanding of how sea levels were affected by changing climates of the past should help in predicting how any melting of the Greenland icesheet might affect global sea levels since it contains so much water.
