Science / project plan

The goal of the project is to reconstruct how the relative sea level has changed in the Mestersvig area in the last 12.000 years. We collect sediment cores from lakes which used to be under the ocean, and from these cores we reconstruct the sea level changes. The relative sea level changes can tell us about the size of the Greenland Ice Sheet in the past.
