Remember the Water circle. Water in Sea and on land rises due to heath/condense/extreme differences in temperatures day and night/storm and huricanes and so on. Once up in the air the small water elements will follow the wind until the “drops” are heavy enough to fall down. On land and in sea. All forms of water tries to come to the lowest point possible. No matter if the drops fallen like rain or snow. No matter if they together with other drops caused an glacier that due to it’s “weight” makes the land under sink or if the drops fallen like rain in lakes, floods or on land trying to reach sea as soon as possible.
Last Ice Age
During the last Ice Age, when northern Europe, and eastwards far away to eastern Siberia, with counterpart on the North American continent, was below one kilometer thick ice sheet, in some places up to 3000 meters thick, weighed down the country below the ice sheet.
Before we go any further,it is best to tell that there existed a sea where in parts of the sea areas we today call Atlantic not only after but during the many thousand years of “our” latest Ice Age. That’s because of a predecessor to today’s Golf Power brought warm air and plus degree water circulated in the Sea causing open sea to exist up to the islands off shore of today’s Trondheim – Alta area.
A large bay existed that due to the landsinking under the heavy Inland’s Ice/Ice sheet stretched eastward over the mountains and today’s high tops of Scandinavia – at that time pressed down due to the Ice above.
We start from the beginning: All is land that have Ice/Glacier or such above has been sinking exactly as Archimedes Principle tells. All ice floating in water, press an “equivalent amount” of water. For truly natural process and more scientific explanation lookup Archimedes’ principle.
The ice over northern Europe melted from the south and the country first began to rise in the south. People followed, like salmon, bears and many predators. When we get to the Stone Age, is still large part of the country we call Sweden, as well as Norway, Finland and eastward lying under a thick sheet of ice.
Land uplift begins
Season causes ice to melt and/or grow. Melting more some seasons but always growing when the temperature falls below zero degrees Celcius.
Thus the ice melts and the country during the rise is a natural process when the peak of an Ice Age has been passed. Sometimes the Ice seems to make a halt. That’s caused by a complicated process involving seasons, angle Earth/Sun and many other factors. (at least 20). Landrise is a retarded movement. Land free of Ice rises quick in beginning. The later landareas reached above waterlevel due to melting ice above the later the natural force of landrise started. Landrise speed isn’t the same at any given time in history in north and in south.
There are those who believe that only differ by seven times from today’s average. It is not true. When the ice melted started the land below rapid rise from the water. But only a few miles from that landarea other areas still under Ice sheet hadn’t started the rising process.
In some places landrise after peak of last Ice Age could be several meters in just ten to a hundred years. In others the process still is observerable, such as along the coast we in Sweden calls “Höga Kusten” northern parts of the Bottnia Sea. Water in all its forms, tries to reach the lowest point it can find. The result of this is that the country ‘dumps’.
