..the most well-documented of these pulses occurred about 14,200 years ago and is known as meltwater pulse 1a (MWP 1a). Evidence for MWP 1a has been found in corals from Barbados, Tahiti, and Southeast Asia (8,9 and 10). These coral records show that sea level rose by 16 m over 300 years, an average rate of about 50 mm/year - twenty times faster than the current rate of sea level rise.
