Short summary
Studies of ancient sea level and coastlines help scientists understand how coasts will respond to future sea-level rise. This work standardized the published records of sea level around New Zealand correlated with sea-level peaks within the Last Interglacial (~128 000–73 000 years ago) using the World Atlas of Last Interglacial Shorelines (WALIS) database. New Zealand has the potential to provide an important sea-level record with more detailed descriptions and improved age constraint.
