Recent studies in Fennoscandia have shown that the time at which the maximum rate of glacio-isostatic uplift occurs (usually about the time of deglaciation) is associated with intense faulting and fracturing of the bedrock, which, at least partly, implies corresponding seismic activity. This information improves the understanding of the process of glacio-isostasy and bears upon such problems as the storage of nuclear waste, the pathways for solutions giving rise to ore formation, and the interpretation (and nomenclature) of fractured bedrock and of certain bouldery deposits.
