The work was performed under the auspices of the Global Sea Level Observing System (GLOSS) research programme of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission and was funded partly by the National Environment Research Council (NERC) and partly by Professor Jerry Mitrovica at the University of Toronto. We would like to thank these sources for their financial support.
The research was carried out at the Department of Earth Sciences, University of Durham. We would like to thank the administrative and technical staff for their support while this work was being carried out. Special thanks go to Dave Stevenson and Gary Wilkinson for their IT support.
All of the maps show were created using the GMT (Generic Mapping Tools) software package.
