WALIS – the World Atlas of Last Interglacial Shorelines

Eds: Rovere A, Ryan D, Murray-Wallace CV, Vacchi M, Simms A & Dutton A

Earth System Science Data, 2020

This special issue is supported by PALSEA (a PAGES-INQUA working group) and by WARMCOASTS (ERC StG 802414). The last interglacial (125 ka) represents the last warm period of the Earth's history when climate was warmer than present. Understanding sea-level changes in the last interglacial is important for unravelling future ice melting scenarios. Although the age, elevation, and geological characteristics of last interglacial sea-level proxies have been reported in the literature, thus far few organized data collections have been compiled. With this special issue, editors want to invite regional experts on last interglacial sea-level proxies to review existing (and new) last interglacial sea-level data for specific regions.
