New research suggests that some of the early data of sea level rise as a result of climate change may be skewed. The 1991 eruption of Mt. Pinatubo may have led to biased results, but researchers still believe sea levels could rise 20 feet by 2100.

Sea-level rise is one of the inevitable results of global warming, as warmer ocean waters expand and land ice melts and adds water to the oceans. Observations show that the seas are indeed rising and that the rise in the 20th century is unique in the context of the previous millennia. However, more difficult to answer is the question of how fast and how far sea level will rise in the future. The billion-dollar-question is: How stable are the ice sheets on Greenland and Antarctica? Stefan Rahmstorf obtained his PhD in oceanography at Victoria University of Wellington in 1990. He has worked as a scientist at the New Zealand Oceanographic Institute, at the Institute of Marine Science in Kiel and since 1996 at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. His work focuses on the role of the oceans in climate change. In 1999 Rahmstorf was awarded the $ 1 million Centennial Fellowship Award of the US-based James S. McDonnell foundation. Since 2000 he teaches Physics of the Oceans as a professor at Potsdam University. Rahmstorf served from 2004–2013 in the German Advisory Council on Global Change (WBGU) and was one of the lead authors of the 4th IPCC Assessment Report. Dr. Rahmstorf has published over 100 scientific papers (30 in leading journals such as Nature, Science and PNAS) and co-authored four books.

In these regions, sea levels are rising faster than the global average, the result of subsiding lands, a slowing Gulf Stream and melting land ice in Antarctica.

From 2003 to 2010, NASA satellites systematically measured all of Earth's melting glacial ice--the results added up to 4.3 trillion tons of water and a global sea level rise of half an inch. Put in perspective, that's enough ice to bury the entire U.S. 1.5-feet deep. These calculations are detailed in a new study released in February 8, 2012 by a team of scientists at the University of Colorado. The scientists used satellite measurements from the NASA Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE), which launched in 2002 and focused on how melting ice from glaciers and ice caps is adding to global sea level rise. Of all of the ice loss measured yearly, around one quarter came from glaciers and ice caps outside of Greenland and Antarctica, which equaled about 148 billion tons or 39 cubic miles, according to the study. Melting ice from Greenland, Antarctica, and nearby caps and glaciers averaged roughly 385 billion tons, or 100 cubic miles, per year. This study is groundbreaking because it is the first time that all of the nearly 200,000 glaciers worldwide have been monitored together for an extended amount of time. Typically, estimates have been made on just a few glaciers and then the results are applied to other glaciers that have not yet been monitored. Some of the study's results are unexpected, such as the ice melt in Asia's Himalayan, Pamir, and Tien Shan mountain ranges. Previously estimates were as high as 50 billion tons of ice loss a year in the three ranges combined, but calculations from GRACE put it closer to 4 billion tons annually. "This study finds that the world's small glaciers and ice caps in places like Alaska, South America, and the Himalayas contribute about .02 inches per year to sea level rise," said NASA scientist Tom Wagner. "While this is lower than previous estimates, it confirms that ice is being lost from around the globe, with just a few areas in precarious balance. The results sharpen our view of land ice melting, which poses the biggest, most threatening factor in future sea level rise." (CNet)

By 2100, the overall level of the Mediterranean could rise between 3--61 cm as a result of the effects of climate change. This could have adverse effects on populations across the Mediterranean: Rising sea levels will submerge parts of Malta. Rising sea levels will also mean rising salt water levels in Malta's groundwater supply and reduce the availability of drinking water. A 30 cm (12 in) rise in sea level would flood 200 square kilometres of the Nile Delta, displacing over 500,000 Egyptians. Coastal ecosystems also appear to be threatened by sea level rise, especially enclosed seas such as the Baltic, the Mediterranean and the Black Sea. These seas have only small and primarily east-west movement corridors, which may restrict northward displacement of organisms in these areas. Sea level rise for the next century (2100) could be between 30 cm (12 in) and 100 cm (39 in) and temperature shifts of a mere 0.05-0.1°C in the deep sea are sufficient to induce significant changes in species richness and functional diversity.
A recent study has attempted to answer the question as to what happens to the iciest continent if fossil fuel use continues apace. The answer is alarming: all of Antarctica’s ice would melt—and take down much of human civilization with it. If we use all the world's fossil fuels, we're likely to melt all the ice on Antarctica. And what's left would barely resemble the Earth as we know it. A study in Science Advances notes that burning all the world's presently-existing oil, coal, and natural gas would raise global temperatures so high that all of Antarctica's ice would melt—resulting in a sea level rise of at least 160 feet. But if temperatures reached such a point, the rest of the world's land ice would likely melt as well. This could result in a sea level rise of over 200 feet. Gone would be Paris, London, Tokyo, Beijing, New York, Washington, New Orleans and Houston—to name but a few. The process would take a while—the study mapped out ten thousand years of carbon release—but half of the melting could occur in the next thousand years and this could result in sea levels rising around a foot per decade. Climate scientist Ken Caldeira noted, “We’re not a subtle influence on the climate system—we are really hitting it with a hammer.”

Join #FOWLERNATION!! http://bit.ly/14crV4D By the time climate change reduces crop yields or frequently floods New York City subways, it would be too late to avert damage without better forecasting tools, a panel of scientists said in a report released today. Dangerous rises in the sea level or heat waves that kill crops can arrive quickly and leave little time to put preventative measures in place, according to a study from the National Research Council, a group of scientists providing information for U.S. government decision-makers. The report -- one of two issued today on climate change -- calls for an early warning system to monitor climate conditions and improved models for predicting changes that impact the way people live. The alerts could be modeled on such programs as the National Integrated Drought Information System created by Congress in 2006 or the U.S. Agency for International Development's Famine Early Warning System Network. "It's important to look down the road and try to identify what are the abrupt changes that we can plan for with some degree of confidence, and then make the best of them rather than having them hit us in the face," said Anthony Barnosky, professor of integrated biology at the University of California in Berkley and a co-author of the report. Hansen Report In a separate report today, James Hansen, who warned of the dangers of global warming as early as 1988, said a United Nations-endorsed target of capping global warming is too high and will ensure future generations suffer "irreparable harm." Even limiting warming to 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) above pre-industrial times would submerge coastlines, cause the mass extinction of species and trigger extreme weather, according to Hansen, former director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies and co-author of the report published today in the journal PLOS One. Quick action, including a fee on carbon dioxide emissions and the expansion of nuclear power, is needed to prevent the worst impacts of climate change, according to the paper. "Two degrees Celsius warming above pre-industrial, which would mean about 1 degree Celsius warming above the present, creates a significantly different planet with enormous consequences, including eventually the un-inhabitability of coastal cities," Hansen, adjunct professor at New York's Columbia University's Earth Institute, said at a briefing. "There's no recognition of this in government policies." Ocean Monitoring The planet's rapid warming is already producing adverse results. The loss of Arctic sea ice is under way as atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide continue to rise, according to Barnosky. Other impacts, such as sea-level rise from ocean warming, will probably to take longer and may be predicted with better satellite data and ocean monitoring. "There's nothing in place to put all the pieces together in a way that really integrates the information to make it meaningful for this sort of longer-term prediction," Barnosky said. Barnosky recommends that the U.S. government create an Abrupt Change Early Warning System using many existing resources. Record carbon emissions have lifted the Earth's temperature about 0.8 degrees Celsius (1.4 degrees Fahrenheit) since the industrial revolution, and the planet is on a path to exceed the UN-endorsed maximum of 2 degrees Celsius of warming by 2100. Scientists say as a result, sea levels are rising and oceans are acidifying.

We learned last year that many of the effects of climate change are irreversible. Sea levels have been rising at a greater rate year after year, and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change estimates they could rise by another meter or more by the end of this century. As National Geographic showed us in 2013, sea levels would rise by 216 feet if all the land ice on the planet were to melt. This would dramatically reshape the continents and drown many of the world's major cities.

According to a report by the council’s Science Advisory Team, for every foot of global sea-level rise caused by the melting West Antarctic, sea levels will rise approximately 1.25 feet in the California coast. Researchers theorize that due to Earth’s rotation and gravitational pull, melting ice in Antarctica — particularly in the western portion — is pulled toward the California coast. This makes rising sea levels more dramatic in the region. In 2100, sea levels could rise as high as 6.9 feet in San Francisco and 7.1 feet in La Jolla. The council plans to hold a series of workshops and propose measures to address the danger of rising sea levels. RUNDOWN SHOWS: 1. Melting west Antarctica pulled towards the Californian coast 2.

A simple science fair project to investigate the effect of sea ice (ice in the ocean) versus terrestrial ice (ice on land). The results can be used to understand how ice melting affects sea level rise. Materials for the science project are three containers, small rocks to represent land, water, and a ruler.

Animations shows flooding in Boston that would result from a 100-year coastal storm surge with sea level rise of 0.60 meters (approximately 2 feet). Higher relative sea level will add to the base elevation of any storm surge, giving it more power to overtop both natural and constructed protection. Find out more at http://www.net.org/warming

Many people think human caused global warming will result in sea level rise that will wash Florida away. Dr. John Harper, FGSA,FGAC, PGeol., former director of the Geological Survey of Canada, explains that the land 'platform' of Florida is different than most of the USA (even though they are physically connected to each other). Florida's platform is made of limestone, a chalk-like substance, that readily disintegrates when exposed to fresh water. This explains the reason why so many sink holes have appeared in Florida. Sea levels dropped dramatically and exposed this land to air and fresh water. In the Bahamas, where the same kind of land platform exists there are deep sea caves where human remains and artifacts are being found. Human-caused climate change is not the cause of Florida's gradual natural breakdown due to the inherent weakness of the platform and erosion by the elements.

‘Rising Sea Temperatures,’ demonstrates how the rise of population has increased over time and has simultaneously lead to the production of more carbon emissions. The excessive production of carbon emissions leads to warming sea temperatures. This results in rising sea levels, which poses as a serious threat to many coastal cities. The final image displays all the cities in 2050 underwater as a result of rising sea temperature expected to increase sea level by well over 10metres.

According to an alarming new study, the rate at which Antarctic sea ice is melting is growing exponentially, and as a result, we can expect sea level rises of up to 10 feet within the next century if we stay on this current trajectory. The oceans are warming faster than scientists had predicted and we are running out of time to address the greatest global crisis in our history. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains what’s happening and what needs to happen to prevent catastrophe.

In the last few months, we have had some pretty horrible studies come out showing just how little time we have left to fix the planet before we face some of the most catastrophic impacts of climate change. Well, adding onto that list of absolutely terrifying stories and studies that have come out is a new one showing that within the next century, actually by the end of this century, we could see sea level rise of up to 10 feet globally thanks to the rapidly accelerating melting of Antarctic ice cap, specifically the West Antarctic ice sheet. It's unstable. It is collapsing and it is melting is what this new study tells us, but it also tells us, oh, it's melting a little bit faster than we had predicted it would, and by the end of this century, if it melts the way it is now, if it stays constant, not even if it accelerates, but if it just stays constant. 10 foot sea level rise across the globe, 10 feet. To put that into perspective, a six foot sea level rise would put the entire tip of Florida for a good one, hundred and 50 miles from tip inland. That would all be underwater. Now. Those parts of Florida would be gone forever with just a six foot sea level rise at two foot sea level rise would destroy most of the barrier islands throughout the Gulf coast and some along the Atlantic coast to fleet, and yet we could be looking at 10 foot sea level rises within our lifetime if things stay constant, and that's the key because we have the opportunity right now to not stay constant. We have the opportunity right now to reverse course. There is still time. That clock is ticking faster and faster every day, but there's still time we could get off fossil fuels, we could be investing in renewable energy sources and infrastructure to carry that. The technology exists. We're just not using it and that's what's the most frustrating about all this. It's there. We're just not doing it and we have an administration right now that's doubling down on fossil fuels, cutting subsidies and renewable energy programs all together in order to burn more coal in order to rely more on fracked gas and conventional oil, so we're not reversing course. We're going head on into the same fuel sources that have caused this problem to begin with. I say there's still time. Me Personally, do I think as a, as a race, as a planet, as a country, are we going to do it? No. I have zero faith. I have no faith at all. I do not think it's going to happen. I think instead we're going to have to live with a world destroyed by climate change. Now, maybe that's just me, but we've seen how human beings are. We've seen how politics is. If you can look at all that and tell me you actually have faith in us as a, as a species to do something about this, then you're much more optimistic than I am. I don't want to sound gloom and doom. I don't want to say like, we're all screwed. We're all going to die, but I don't have faith in people anymore and I sure as hell don't have faith in our institutions to do what is necessary to fix this problem.

Rising sea levels may threaten River Thames. Rising sea levels caused by climate change may have a direct effect on the River Thames in London, causing it to flood parts of the city if reinforcements are not made. Estimates vary widely, but melting ice is thought to be a contributing factor in the gradual rise of sea levels worldwide. European scientists at the Ice2Sea project estimate that the sea level will rise somewhere between 3 point 5 and 36 point 8 centimeters by the year 2100, with some estimates around a meter or more when adding in storm surges. These forecasted changes could result in water surges high enough to breach the flood barriers built in the River Thames. The barriers of the Thames were designed with one thousand year flood protection in mind. Professor David Vaughan, of the British Antarctic Survey said that with a one meter rise in sea level "you would take that level of protection from one in 1,000 years down to one in 10 years." The effects of climate change on sea levels will vary from place to place, with some locations having a higher risk of flooding in the future.

The City of Imperial Beach, California faces coastal erosion and coastal flooding hazards from three sides. This presentation will describe the City’s approach to sea level rise planning and results of the coastal hazard vulnerabilities and economic impact assessment from coastal hazards. Adaptation strategies, including a living shoreline approach, were evaluated using a holistic approach linking economic tradeoffs to physical responses. This science-based approach to adaptation planning highlights the cost effectiveness of various approaches through time. As the City moves forward to identify and implement short term adaptation plans to existing hazards, the frequency and duration of future hazards is being considered in the development of updated land use policies. Lessons learned from the project, stakeholder process, and adaptation planning as well as future work needs and approaches will be shared so that other communities can benefit. Speakers: Mayor Serge Dedina, Dr. David Revell, Dr. Phil King, and Chris Helmer

In this mini lecture Dr. Rosh Ranasinghe introduces a new model that allows researchers at UNESCO-IHE, TU Delft and Deltares to much more accurately predict coastline erosion due to rising sea levels. It would appear that the effects of coastline erosion as a result of rising sea-level in the vicinity of inlets, such as river estuaries, have until now been dramatically underestimated. The scientists have published their research in the online edition of Nature Climate Change on Sunday 2 September 2012. Read more: http://bit.ly/TVDkLp

Latin America and the Caribbean are particularly vulnerable to climate change impacts. By 2050, rising sea levels, temperatures increases, changes in rainfall patterns will result in an estimated annual cost of around 2-4 percent of the region’s GDP. Climate change is upending business as usual, leading to new policy priorities and the allocation of resources to previously underfunded areas. But changing business as usual is also an opportunity to do things differently, and an opportunity to innovate.
