Sea level rise: what’s the worst case?

by Judith Curry Draft of article to be submitted for journal publication.

Special Report on Sea Level Rise

by Judith Curry I have now completed my assessment of sea level rise and climate change.

Sea level rise: isostatic adjustment

by Judith Curry A discussion thread to ponder the uncertainties in glacial isostatic adjustment and the implications for past and future sea level rise.

Sea level rise acceleration (or not): Part VII U.S. coastal impacts

by Judith Curry The final installment in the CE series on sea level rise.

Sea level rise acceleration (or not): Part VI. Projections for the 21st century

by Judith Curry The concern about sea level rise is driven primarily by projections of future sea level rise.

Sea level rise acceleration (or not). Part V: detection & attribution

by Judith Curry In looking for causes, I have applied the ‘Sherlock Holmes procedure’ of eliminating one suspect after another. The procedure has left us without any good suspect. Thermal expansion was the candidate of choice at the time of … Continue reading

Will advances in groundwater science force a paradigm shift in sea level rise attribution?

by Jim Steele  A better accounting of natural groundwater discharge is needed to constrain the range of contributions to sea level rise. The greater the contribution from groundwater discharge, the smaller the adjustments used to amplify contributions from meltwater and … Continue reading

Sea level rise acceleration (or not): Part IV – Satellite era record

by Judith Curry Part IV of the Climate Etc. series on sea level rise focuses on the satellite era (since 1993), including the recent causes of sea level variations and arguments regarding the acceleration (or not) of recent sea level … Continue reading

Sea level rise acceleration (or not): Part III – 19th & 20th century observations

By Judith Curry “We are in the uncomfortable position of extrapolating into the next century without understanding the last.” – Walter Munk 

Sea level rise acceleration (or not): Part II – The geological record

By Judith Curry Part II of the Climate Etc. series on sea level rise –the geological record provides context for the recent sea level rise.

Sea level rise acceleration (or not): Part I – Introduction

by Judith Curry Introduction and context for a new Climate Etc. series on sea level rise.

Sea level rise, acceleration and the closure problem

by Rud Istvan There is no doubt that interglacials change sea level (SL). And that sea level rise (SLR) can be dramatic on millennial interglacial time scales.

Another Antarctic Sea Level Rise False Alarm

by Rud Istvan Aitken et. al. in Nature newly comports to confirm 2015 fears about instability of the Totten Glacier in Eastern Antarctica. This could ‘suddenly’ raise sea level as much as 4 meters! (Or, based on the abstract, maybe … Continue reading

Is sea level rise accelerating?

by Judith Curry Estimates of the rate of sea level rise are diverging.

Sea level rise tipping points

by Rud Istvan Sea level tipping points are a popular CAGW/media theory, easily suggested by images of calving icebergs and summer meltwater rushing down Greenland moulins. But they are alarmist precautionary mitigation fantasies rather than remotely possible future scenarios on multi-centennial … Continue reading

Slowing sea level rise

by Judith Curry Since the early 1990s, sea level rose at a mean rate of ~3.1 mm yr−1. However, over the last decade a slowdown of this rate, of about 30%, has been recorded. – Cazenave et al.

Historic variations in sea levels. Part 1: From the Holocene to Romans

by Tony Brown The IPCC AR4 projected sea level rise in 2100 to range from 18-59 cm, depending on  the emission scenario.  More recent projections are for a 1 m sea level rise in 2100 [here and here].  Apart from … Continue reading
