Abstract

This chapter summarizes observed and inferred isostatic effects of Pleistocene ice sheets in British Columbia. At the end of the last glaciation, isostatic depression locally exceeded 250 m. Areas at the periphery of the ice sheet were deglaciated earliest and rebounded first. As deglaciation progressed, the zone of rapid isostatic uplift migrated and was accompanied by forebulge effects. (P. A. Pirazzoli).
