Abstract : The paper discusses the process of glacio-isostatic movements of the earth's crust. Canada is an ideal area for such an analysis. The post-glacial uplift of the Canadian shield occurred against the background of the eustatic rise of the World Ocean's level, caused by melting of ice sheets. This made it necessary to introduce a corresponding correction in order to obtain a clear structural expression of the process of uplift. Charts depicting various facets of this post glacial uplift are shown. (Author)
