Par exemple, en s'appuyant sur un scenario de rechauffement climatique donnant lieu a une elevation du niveau de la mer de 1,8 mm par annee, une etendue plausible pour les modeles d'ajustement isostatique laisse entendre que les iles Strutton et les iles du cap Hope rejoindront la partie continentale du Quebec dans environ 400 ans ou plus, tandis que l'ile Akimiski mettra environ 700 ans a s'integrer a la partie continentale de l'Ontario.
