At the end of the last ice age, the melting of large ice sheets led to substantial sea level rises. But the sea level changes were not even in time or space. In his Perspective, Sabadini explains how Clark et al. use the geographic patterns of sea level change to deduce the pattern of ice sheet melting and hence of climatic change during deglaciation.
