As it was mentioned before, the period before 7500 yr BP included some dramatic, eustatic sea level variations due to glacial melting with time-varying rates, tectonic uplift and glacial isostacy (Muru et al.
The ridges went up to 50 meters in height and were seen to match the scale of eustatic sea level changes on Earth.
Cross-cutting relationships are observed at the valley-scale, indicating multiple episodes of water level fall and rise, each well over 50 meters, a similar scale to eustatic sea level changes on Earth.
This comparison shows that in long term the eustatic sea level kept still while matchup in the short term sea level changes exists between the relative and eustatic sea level.
The evidence supports a model of localized control on sedimentation rather than sedimentation controlled by glacially influenced eustatic sea level change and we think that glacially controlled sea level changes were not a contributing factor to post-Bucktown Coal sedimentation patterns.
During periods of glaciation, declining eustatic sea levels result in exposure of the shallow basin floor with a consequent shift to aeolian sedimentary systems typically in the form of dune-field development (Glennie, 1998).
Glacial eustatic sea level low stands during the late Pleistocene merged the islands into a larger land mass called Santarosae (Orr 1968; Fig.
In some parts of Atlantic Canada, this eustatic sea level rise will be added to that already caused by crustal subsidence.
Warming, however, is certain to induce a rise in eustatic sea level.
To study the cyclicity within the Chhidru Formation, we use Upper Permian (Dzulan) age of the Chhidru Formation (Nakazawa and Dickins, 1985; Furnish and Glenister 1970) for comparison of the deduced relative sea level curve with chronology of eustatic sea level curves of Haq and Schutter (2008), Chen et al.
The global eustatic sea level curve might give evidence about the relationship between MGS fluctuations and glaciation dynamics.
This, combined with a lowering of eustatic sea level, resulted in the exposure and erosion of broad shelfal areas, and deposition of the detritus in the sag basin.
From Early Triassic, the step by step rising relative eustatic sea level (Haq et al.
