Relative sea-level changes and the history of the Greenland Ice Sheet

We can use relative sea-level data from lake basins around Greenland to understand how the ice sheet responded to climate changes during the past few thousand years. Coastal saltmarshes also contain records of recent sea-level changes (past few decades to hundreds of years) that can help us understand how the Greenland Ice Sheet has responded to more recent climate changes.
