Abstract

The least-squares linear regressions of altitudes or depths at 1000 year-time intervals between 8000 yr BP and the present have been calculated. This method modified from Y. Ota etal. and the one used by Andrews to calculate the postglacial uplift both show an exponential decay. The value of b in eache linear regression indicates insignificant eustatic sea-level change for the last 8000 years. Therefore the sea level deviation are neither eustatic nor isostatic and must be due to local tectonic movements.
