Very interesting, Ray. I actually live just a few kilometres from the Canadian Shield which is responding in th same way as your Arctic region. (isostatic rebound) This means that the north end of Lake Huron, which is the Shield, is rising and the water is shallower. The south end of the lake is not part of the Shield and water there has become deeper. Of course, this is barely discernible in our lifetime but is measurable by satellites. As climate change accelerates, particularly in the Arctic, your harbours may be flooded once again!GFX50(r), 100-200
The artic region of Sweden does not have much to offer in the form of awe-inspiring high mountains.
This region has been through a large number of ice-ages due to the age of those mountains. And the ice grinds the mountains to dust...
And the weight of all this ice did press down on the land. When the ice melted, the land started to rise up again
The rise of the land in the top region of the Gulf of Bothnia is today about 10 mm each year.
This has had a negative effect on the cities with a harbour in that region, you can almost see the sea disappearing out from your harbour...
The photo here shows a typical example of an old mountain that has been ground to almost nothing
Bill has shown many time the opposite of this from Canada. All the young and high mountains that he has beautifully depicted.
By going west in this region the mountains start to get higher. But then you will end up in Norway, and now the border is closed.
But, as Mr T said: I'll be back!
