Abstract

The SEAMIS database (Mendeley data repository; https://doi.org/10.17632/wp4ctb4667.1) contains 546 relative sea-level indicators from 31 different studies within the broader Southeast Asian region including the Maldives, India and Sri Lanka. Here we compare quality-controlled and site-specific relative sea-level data from 23 studies from the SEAMIS database to a suite of ICE-5G glacial isostatic adjustment models. The relation between robust and, if applicable, tectonically corrected relative sea-level data with the broad predictions of glacial isostatic adjustment models is interpreted and discussed in the article “Holocene sea levels in Southeast Asia, Maldives, India and Sri Lanka: The SEAMIS database” [1] in Quaternary Science Reviews.
