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

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 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.

Beyond ENSO: new signals of seasonal to interannual predictability

by Judith Curry My new talk on improving seasonal to interannual climate predictions.

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

Is sea level rise accelerating?

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

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 Arctic sea ice. Part II: 1920-1950

by Tony Brown Satellite observations that provide an hour by hour picture of every part of the Arctic make it easy to forget that large areas of it had not even been even explored 80 years ago – let alone … Continue reading

Reassessing the RCPs

by Kevin Murphy A response to: “Is RCP8.5 an impossible scenario?”. This post demonstrates that RCP8.5 is so highly improbable that it should be dismissed from consideration, and thereby draws into question the validity of RCP8.5-based assertions such as those … Continue reading
