"Any building that was At postglacial rebound time scales, the intraplate continental lithosphere typically behaves as an elastic solid. However, under exceptional conditions, the effective viscosity of the lower crust and lithospheric mantle may be as low as ∼10 20 Pa s, leading to ductile behavior at postglacial rebound time scales.

We studied the effects of a lithospheric ductile zone on postglacial rebound. A selection of books on earthquakes have been set aside on a trolley for your class.
