Plot of ice sheet surface elevations in Iceland at different times during the last ice age.

Ice sheet surface elevations in Iceland at different times, in thousand years (ka), based on cosmogenic 3He concentrations (Gosse and Phillips, 2001) of the rocks erupted at the top of tuyas or table mountains along profiles in northern and southwestern Iceland (Licciardi et al., 2007).
