Kjenstad, K. 1997 . A four-dimensional time-space trend model to be applied in the reconstruction of former sea levels and ice-front recession. Norsk geogr. Tidsskr. Vol. 51, 29-34. Oslo. ISSN 0029-1951. The model is represented by a four-dimensional trend function giving the elevation of the sea level (Z) above the present one as a function of locality co-ordinates (x and y) and time co-ordinate (t). The function and an estimate of its uncertainty have been given compact mathematical

The model has previously been tested on data from the Oslofjord area, where it has been applied to reconstruction of the ice-front recession chronology.
