Probabilistic 21st and 22nd century sea‐level projections at a global network of tide‐gauge sites
Sea‐level rise due to both climate change and non‐climatic factors threatens coastal settlements, infrastructure, and ecosystems. Projections of mean global sea‐level (GSL) rise provide insufficient…

Probabilistic reanalysis of twentieth-century sea-level rise
This analysis, which combines tide gauge records with physics-based and model-derived geometries of the various contributing signals, indicates that GMSL rose at a rate of 3.0 ± 0.7 millimetres per year between 1993 and 2010, consistent with prior estimates from tide gauging records.

An extensive compilation of local sea level indicators and a statistical approach for estimating global sea level, local sea levels, ice sheet volumes and their associated uncertainties are presented and highlight the long-term vulnerability of ice sheets to even relatively low levels of sustained global warming.

It is argued that oxygenic cyanobacteria evolved and radiated shortly before the Makganyene snowball, and could have destroyed a methane greenhouse and triggered a snowball event on time-scales as short as 1 million years.

Evolving Understanding of Antarctic Ice‐Sheet Physics and Ambiguity in Probabilistic Sea‐Level Projections
Mechanisms such as ice‐shelf hydrofracturing and ice‐cliff collapse may rapidly increase discharge from marine‐based ice sheets. Here, we link a probabilistic framework for sea‐level projections to a…

To test a hypothesized faster‐than‐global sea level acceleration along the mid‐Atlantic United States, I construct a Gaussian process model that decomposes tide gauge data into short‐term variability…

Using Pacific benthic foraminiferal δ18O and Mg/Ca records, a Cenozoic global mean sea level (GMSL) estimate is derived that records evolution from an ice-free Early Eocene to Quaternary bipolar ice sheets and sea-level variability dominated by periodic Milankovitch cycles.
