What is Isostasy?
Isostasy and Postglacial Rebound. ( This site may be offline. ) Animations, static diagrams, and photos are used to depict the isostatic adjustments associated with the emplacement and removal of ice sheets. From the website of William W. Locke (Montana State University).
Isostasy and Postglacial Rebound. (more info) From the Dynamic Earth website at the University of Leeds, simple and clear interactive graphics illustrate how two models of isostasy have been used to explain variations in topography.
