Observations: Oceanic Climate Change and Sea Level
The oceans are warming. Over the period 1961 to 2003, global ocean temperature has risen by 0.10°C from the surface to a depth of 700 m. Consistent with the Third Assessment Report (TAR), global…
Sea-Level Rise and Its Impact on Coastal Zones
Although the impacts of sea-level rise are potentially large, the application and success of adaptation are large uncertainties that require more assessment and consideration.
Sea Level Change
Two characteristics of climate change are resulting in sea level rise. First, the melting of ice sheets and glaciers on land are adding more water to the oceans. Second, ocean temperatures are…
Contemporary sea level rise.
The most recent progress made in quantifying the processes causing sea level change on timescales ranging from years to decades, i.e., thermal expansion of the oceans, land ice mass loss, and land water-storage change are discussed.
Present-Day Sea Level Change: Observations and Causes
We investigate climate-related processes causing variations of the global mean sea level on interannual to decadal time scale. We focus on thermal expansion of the oceans and continental water mass…
A new assessment of the error budget of global mean sea level rate estimated by satellite altimetry over 1993–2008
Abstract. A new error budget assessment of the global Mean Sea Level (MSL) determined by TOPEX/Poseidon and Jason-1 altimeter satellites between January 1993 and June 2008 is presented using last…
Recent Climate Observations Compared to Projections
Concerns that the climate system, in particular sea level, may be responding more quickly to climate change than the current generation of models indicates are raised.
Sea level budget over 2003-2008: A reevaluation from GRACE space gravimetry, satellite altimetry and Argo
Sea Level Rise During Past 40 Years Determined from Satellite and in Situ Observations
It is found that subsampling the thermosteric sea level at usual tide gauge positions leads to a thermostic sea level rise twice as large as the “true” global mean.
