Abstract. Recent assessments from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) imply that global mean sea level is unlikely to rise more than about 1.1 m within this century but will increase further beyond 2100. Even within the most intensive future anthropogenic greenhouse gas emission scenarios, higher levels are assessed to be unlikely. However, some studies conclude that considerably greater sea level rise could be realized, and a number of experts assign a substantially higher…

Future sea level rise constrained by observations and long-term commitment
TLDR
An approach that combines information about the equilibrium sea level response to global warming and last century's observed contribution from the individual components to constrain projections for this century is presented, which may lead to a better understanding of the gap between process-based and global semiempirical approaches.
The causes of sea-level rise since 1900
TLDR
A probabilistic framework to reconstruct sea level since 1900 is presented, revealing budget closure within uncertainties and showing ice-mass loss from glaciers as a dominant contributor, and the magnitude of observed global-mean sea-level rise is reconciled with estimates based on the contributing processes.

TLDR
A well-defined and clearly sigmoidal relationship between atmospheric CO2 and sea level is identified that strongly supports the dominant role of CO2 in determining Earth’s climate on these timescales and suggests that other variables that influence long-term global climate play a secondary role.
Ice sheet contributions to future sea-level rise from structured expert judgment
TLDR
The findings of a structured expert judgement study, using unique techniques for modeling correlations between inter- and intra-ice sheet processes and their tail dependences, find that a global total SLR exceeding 2 m by 2100 lies within the 90% uncertainty bounds for a high emission scenario.
Temperature-driven global sea-level variability in the Common Era
TLDR
This is the first, to the authors' knowledge, estimate of global sea-level (GSL) change over the last ∼3,000 years that is based upon statistical synthesis of a global database of regional sea- level reconstructions, and indicates that, without global warming, GSL in the 20th century very likely would have risen by between −3 cm and +7 cm, rather than the ∼14 cm observed.

Contribution of Antarctica to past and future sea-level rise
TLDR
A model coupling ice sheet and climate dynamics—including previously underappreciated processes linking atmospheric warming with hydrofracturing of buttressing ice shelves and structural collapse of marine-terminating ice cliffs—is calibrated against Pliocene and Last Interglacial sea-level estimates and applied to future greenhouse gas emission scenarios.

A 20th-century GMSL reconstruction computed using an area-weighting technique for averaging tide gauge records that both incorporates up-to-date observations of vertical land motion (VLM) and corrections for local geoid changes resulting from ice melting and terrestrial freshwater storage and allows for the identification of possible differences compared with earlier attempts is presented.
