Reconstructing rates and magnitudes of Holocene sea-level change from Southeast Asia

The understanding of Holocene relative sea-level (RSL) change in Southeast Asia is fragmentary. We will use geological proxies to reconstruct RSL at ±<0.2m vertical and decadal-to-centennial temporal resolution in Indonesia and Malaysia. We will place the new and existing reconstructions in a Bayesian statistical framework and compare with models of Glacial Isostatic Adjustment. We will (1) constrain Global Mean Sea Level; (2) attribute spatial and temporal variability of Holocene RSL to atmosphere-ocean dynamics and/or ice mass balance, and (3) compare the rate of RSL rise since ~1850 CE to other centennial trends during the Holocene.
