PAGES' PALSEA2 working group recently published a paper in Quaternary Science Reviews which uses foraminifera preserved in new and existing cores of dated salt-marsh sediment.
Andrew Kemp et al. produced ∼3000-year long relative sea-level (RSL) histories for two sites in North Carolina (USA) and propose that a period of accelerating RSL rise from ∼600 CE to 1100 CE, which differs between the two sites, is a local-to regional-scale effect of dynamic ocean and/or atmospheric circulation.
