Spatial and temporal variations in the sea levels of the past 20,000 years around the globe place constraints on the melting history of the major late Pleistocene ice sheets. The Antarctic ice sheets provided a significant contribution to the sea-level rise at a rate that was approximately synchronous with the melting of the Laurentide ice sheet, except for the interval 9,000-6,000 years ago, when it may have lagged behind. Minor melting of the Antarctic ice sheet continued throughout the Holocene.
