The Coastal Plain is composed of undeformed sedimentary rock layers whose ages range . Sea level change. World coasts have seen sea-level variation of approximately metres within the past 11, years through melting of the ice caps. When the ice caps melt the sea level rises globally (eustatically). The relative sea-level at any location is measured proportionate to the nearby land, which is itself subject to tectonic.
