I’m very impressed with slide 31, which is a new one on me. Can you provide the source? I’m a big fan of isostasy, but didn’t think it would be expressed in so many brittle events. This, in conjunction with GRACE, is a really important data series to watch.


Thanks, Barry. Clearly I jumped the gun in ascribing isostatic causes (more unloading required), rather the seismic events result from episodic glacial jerks near their discharge points.

I was inspired to do a very crude interrogation of post-2005 seismic activity; it appears that the frequency of glacially-sourced quakes is indeed continuing to increase.
