Region Nordjylland

The Region Nordjylland (North Jutland Region) is translated North Denmark Region in some official sources. It's the northern tip of the Denmark penisula. The whole area was covered by 3.5 km of ice during the last ice age, and since 12,000 years the ice is gone. As a result this area is subject to a continual uplift caused by isostatic forces as the crust is released from the weight. Like a ship being emptied, it lies less deep in the water. But geologic processes are slow, much slower than the melting, so it will take some more time until this neotectonic movement will come to an end. This process is called post-glacial rebound.
