A study, by Larsen et al in 2005, looked into the uplift of Southeast Alaska due to retreating glaciers. It’s main finding was that the uplift began around 1770, therefore confirming that glacier retreat began well before any input from humans could have had any effect.

The paper makes one other interesting observation:
 
“Our best-fit models indicate that the region has regained about one-half of its LIA subsidence”
 
In other words, there had been a massive expansion of glaciers during the Little Ice Age, to cause such subsidence.
 
 
None of this should come as any great surprise, as many other studies, using various methods, have come to similar conclusions.
