Caption

Tree trunks preserved in a submarine forest revealed at low tide at Porlock Weir in Somerset, UK. The submarine forest is evidence of a lower sea level caused by water being locked on the land as ice during the last ice age. Since then the sea level has risen submerging the forest remains which are only visible at low tides. As climate change accelerates, sea levels are rising around the world.
