Sea level is a sensitive indicator of climate change and responds to global warming both directly and indirectly. It rises as oceans warm up and seawater expands, and also as mountain glaciers and ice sheets melt in response to increasing temperature. Tide gauge measurements available since the late 19th century indicate that the global mean sea level has risen by an average of 1.7-1.8 mm year-1 during the 20th century (Church and White 2011), marking the end of the relative stability of the past three millennia. Satellite data available since 1993 point to a higher mean rate of sealevel rise of 3.2±0.4 mm year-1 during the past two decades (Cazenave and Remy 2011) Ocean temperature data suggest that ocean thermal expansion has significantly increased during the second half of the 20th century, accounting for about 30% of the sea-level rise observed since 1993 (Cazenave and Remy 2011; Church et al. 2011a). Numerous observations have reported a worldwide retreat of glaciers during recent decades, with a significant acceleration of this retreat during the 1990s: this also contributes to about 30% of the sea-level rise. Change in land water storage due to natural climate variability contributes negligibly to sea level rise. Human activities (mostly underground water mining and dam building along rivers) have had large effects on sea level during the past six decades or so, but have mostly canceled each other out (Church et al. 2011a). Little was known before the 1990s on the mass balance of the ice sheets because of inadequate and incomplete observations. But remote sensing techniques available since then suggest that the Greenland and West Antarctic ice sheets are losing mass at an accelerated rate, mostly from rapid outlet glacier flow and further iceberg discharge into the surrounding ocean (Steffen et al. 2010; Pfeffer 2011). For the period 1993-2003, less than 15% of the rate of global sea-level rise was due to the ice sheets. But their contribution has increased to ~70% since 2003-2004. Although not constant through time, mass loss from the ice sheets explains ~25% of the rate of sea-level rise since the early 1990s (Cazenave and Remy 2011; Church et al. 2011a). There is little doubt that global warming will continue and even increase during the future decades as greenhouse gas emissions, the main contributor to anthropogenic global warming, are likely to keep growing. Projections from the fourth assessment report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC 2007) indicate that sea level in the year 2100 should be higher than today’s value by ~40 cm (within a range of ±15 cm due to model results dispersion and uncertainty on emissions). More recently it has been suggested that this value could be a lower bound. This is because the climate models at the time accounted for ocean warming and glacial melting (plus a surface mass balance component for the ice sheets) (IPCC 2007), but not for the recently observed dynamical processes that became quite active during the last decade (Steffen et al. 2010; Pfeffer 2011). Thus, mass loss from ice sheets could eventually represent a much larger contribution to future sea-level rise than previously expected (Pfeffer 2011). Yet, despite much recent progress in process understanding and modeling, the ice sheet contribution to 21st century sea-level rise remains highly uncertain. Values around 30-50 cm by 2100 cannot be ruled out for the total land ice (glaciers plus ice sheets) contribution. If we add the ocean-warming component (in the range 20-30 cm; IPCC 2007), global mean sea level at the end of this century could eventually exceed present-day elevation by 50-80 cm (e.g. Church et al. 2011b). Providing realistic sea-level projections remains a high priority in the climate modeling community given their importance to developing realistic coastal management and adaptation plans. But sustained and systematic monitoring of sea level and other climate parameters causing sea-level rise – for example, ocean heat content and land ice melt – is also needed.

The better we understand present-day sea-level rise and its variability, the better we will be able to project changes in future
sea level.

Appreciating the persistence you put into your site and in depth information you provide.
It's great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn't the same old
rehashed material. Great read! I've bookmarked your site and I'm adding
your RSS feeds to my Google account.
#262 Louis Vuitton 17.12.2014 05:25
An interesting discussion is definitely worth
comment. I do think that you need to publish more about
this issue, it may not be a taboo matter but typically people don't talk
about such subjects. To the next! Best wishes!!

At fiгst glance (and each subsequent one, too), the question seems either redundant,
oг absurd. t feel aԝkward or uncomfortable when you use these elevator insoles.
The good news is you can get it naturally and not
only see your sexual performance imprοve but also youг overall

Hi! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where
I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having difficulty finding one?
Thanks a lot!

I do not write a leave a response, but I glanced through some
remarks on Sea level rise - How much and how fast will
sea level rise over the coming centuries? PRESENT. I actually do have
2 questions for you if you do not mind. Could it be only me or do
a few of these responses appear like they are written by brain dead visitors?
:-P And, if you are writing at additional online social sites,
I would like to keep up with anything new you
have to post. Could you make a list of all of your social pages
like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

Normally I do not read article on blogs, but I
wish to say that this write-up very compelled
me to try and do it! Your writing style has been surprised me.
Thanks, quite nice post.

I do believe all the ideas you have presented on your post.
They're really convincing and can certainly work.

Nonetheless, the posts are very short for beginners. May you please lengthen them a little from next time?
Thank you for the post.

After I initially commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new
comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is
added I get 4 emails with the same comment. Perhaps there
is a means you are able to remove me from that service?
