Abramelin Posted October 6, 2009 #26 Share Posted October 6, 2009 (edited) I found a socalled ineractive map of Europe from the time of the last ice age and onwards to the present: http://www.lilliput-...6/PreHisEur.swf Click the blue dots in succession, and see Doggerland disappear beath the waves. Compared to what happend in the Mediterranean what happened with Doggerland was drastic. This was caused by 3 events : -1- the rise of the sea level by the meliting ice sheets ; -2- the rise of the Scandinavian plate - because of the diminishing weight of the ice sheets - and at the same time the sinking of the south of England and Holland (and North Germany as far as I know); the process is called Post-glacial rebound (sometimes called continental rebound, isostatic rebound, isostatic adjustment or post-ice-age isostatic recovery) -3- and last but not least: the giant tsunami caused by the Storregga Slide. .
