Patterns of past, present, and future sea level vary spatially, depending on how the solid Earth responds to the changing distribution of ice and ocean mass, known as glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA). Accurate interpretation of observational constraints on GIA requires dialogue between field scientists and researchers who reconstruct ice sheet geometries, infer Earth structure and rheology, and model the solid Earth response to loading.
