原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)Numerous studies have shown that sediment deposition can perturb sea level by several meters over millennial timescales by modifying the gravity field, crustal elevation, and sediment thickness. Relatively few studies have focused on the complementary role of erosion on sea-level change despite its effects on the same quantities, partly because many rapidly eroding mountains are too far from shorelines to strongly perturb sea level at the coast. Taiwan, a mountainous island eroding rapidly within tens of km of the coast, offers an opportunity to investigate the joint influences of rapid onshore erosion and rapid offshore deposition on sea-level change. Here we develop a sediment loading history for Taiwan since the previous interglacial (∼120 ka) by compiling published...
