This chapter studies the importance, the evidence, and the causes of sea level changes. Sea levels are low during glacials and are high during interglacials. The rapid rise in the sea level in post-glacial times caused the submerging of many coastlines and the rise of the areas covered in ice caps in the Pleistocene because of their loss of ice burden.

Keywords:   sea level changes, Quaternary, glacials, interglacials, Pleistocene
