And 10% of that is apparently due to an isostatic “adjustment”. If Australian sea levels keep falling at this rate, we might really need to save That Reef.Worse, if you look at the data, the rate is closer to zero. Clearly there are many details yet to be worked out about sea-levels.
A series of seminal sea-level studies were undertaken in the following 25 years.
The stabilisation of sea level close to its present elevation in the mid- Holocene set the scene for the detailed reconstructions that were undertaken at different locations around the Australian mainland. A clearer understanding of past sea-level changes and their causes is urgently needed to better inform our ability to forecast future changes.

Although most parts of the Australian continent reveals a high degree of tectonic stability, research conducted since the 1970s has shown that the timing and elevation of a Holocene highstand varies systematically around its margin.
