In 2013, scientists released new projections for future sea level rise for the Chesapeake Bay and for Maryland, Virginia and nearby Mid-Atlantic coastal areas. 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.

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.

Student: Marguerite Manning Faculty: Lily Claiborne Course: EES 1510L: Dynamic Earth In my short research project, I sought to answer how the mean sea level trend values of the North Atlantic region of the US compare with those of the Tropical and Gulf region of the US. In addition to calculating the MSL value for each region, I examined possible causes for the differences in sea level and what implications my findings would have. I found that higher sea levels in Louisiana and the Chesapeake Bay could be attributed to geological phenomena such as erosion of coastal wetlands and post-glacial rebound.

The maps in this atlas are the first draft of a new set of plate tectonic reconstructions that will provide the framework for the revised paleogeographic and paleoclimatic maps that I am preparing for my book, “Earth History: Evolution of the Earth Systems”. As the title of this work implies, the goal of this atlas is to identify the major continents and oceans back through time. Continents are defined to be regions of the Earth that are underlain by continental crust (~lithosphere). Continents may be “emergent” or “flooded” depending on sea level, which has varied from ~200 meters above modern sea level to ~200 meters below modern sea level. The continental regions on these maps are shown in two colors: gray and white. The gray areas represent extant regions of continental crust. The white regions represent areas of continental crust that have been removed by subduction (tectonic erosion), underthrusting beneath continents (like Greater India), or are simply squeezed and compressed into much narrower zones (e.g. the Rocky Mountains or the Central Asian collision zone). Continents come in a variety of sizes and shapes. We reserve the name “continent” for regions of continental crust greater than 10 Mkm2 . The present-day continents are: Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, and South America. In the Early Ordovician the continents were: Baltica, Cathaysia, Gondwana, Laurentia, and Siberia. Regions with areas less than 10 Mkm2 are either “subcontinents”, like the Indian subcontinent (4.6 Mkm2), or “island continents” like Greenland or Madagascar. Subcontinents are continental regions that are contiguous with a larger continent, but are considered to be a distinct region. India is subcontinent because it is separated from Asia by the Himalaya mountains and Tibetan plateau. Island continents, on-the-other-hand, are simply very large islands. Zealandia is an example of a mostly submerged an island continent. Finally, Regions of continental crust less than 1 Mkm2 may be considered to be “microcontinents” (e.g., S. Orkney Islands, Seychelles, Rockall plateau, or Tasman Rise). Oceans Ocean basins are defined to be regions of the Earth that are underlain by oceanic lithosphere. Ocean basins, together with the flooded portions of the continents, comprise the Earth’s oceans, seas, and seaways. It is interesting to note that following the definition of continent and ocean proposed here, there are regions of the Earth that can be considered to be both “continents” and “oceans”. These regions are the portions of the continents flooded by the sea. For example, the Grand Banks of eastern Canada is part of the continent of North America, but the water above the Grand Banks is part of the Atlantic Ocean. The names of these bodies of water may change slightly depending on the maturity of an ocean basin. A newly formed ocean basin, one that is still relatively narrow, may be called a “sea”, like the Red Sea, or if it connects two larger bodies of water, it may be called a “seaway”. The term “sea” is also used for bodies of water surrounded or partially enclosed by continents, like the Mediterranean Sea or Weddell Sea. Oceans as they age, gradually narrow as the continents on either side of the ocean approach each other (through subduction of oceanic lithosphere). Thus, it is possible for a once mighty “ocean” to become a narrow “sea” or “seaway” prior to its demise.

In the last episode we looked at how a large dike was constructed to block seawater from flooding the inner regions of the netherlands. In this episode we’re going to look at how parts of this inland water area was drained and turned into fertile land. While this is part of a series, you don’t need to have watched the first episode to understand this one. I try to make my videos as stand-alone as I can. Ever since the 16th century, large areas of land have been reclaimed from the sea and lakes, amounting to over 50% of the country’s current land area if you include every lake ever laid dry. The process of land reclamation in the Netherlands is mainly done through Poldering. It is the process of draining water from a lake or by placing dikes around an area of water and THEN draining it until you are left with very fertile land. And this is what Lely proposed: build a dike to stop the sea water, then build smaller dikes inside this newly formed lake, and one-by-one drain the water. This land was rich in clay, could be settled, and could be farmed, which in turn meant that the Dutch government could tax them, and make A LOT of money.

Measuring the Greatest Ocean Depth The Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench is the deepest known point in Earth's oceans. In 2010 the United States Center for Coastal & Ocean Mapping measured the depth of the Challenger Deep at 10,994 meters (36,070 feet) below sea level with an estimated vertical accuracy of ± 40 meters. If Mount Everest, the highest mountain on Earth, were placed at this location it would be covered by over one mile of water. The first depth measurements in the Mariana Trench were made by the British survey ship HMS Challenger, which was used by the Royal Navy in 1875 to conduct research in the trench. The greatest depth that they recorded at that time was 8,184 meters (26,850 feet). In 1951, another Royal Navy vessel, also named the "HMS Challenger," returned to the area for additional measurements. They discovered an even deeper location with a depth of 10,900 meters (35,760 feet) determined by echo sounding. The Challenger Deep was named after the Royal Navy vessel that made these measurements. In 2009, sonar mapping done by researchers aboard the RV Kilo Moana, operated by the University of Hawaii, determined the depth to be 10,971 meters (35,994 feet) with a potential error of ± 22 meters. The most recent measurement, done in 2010, is the 10,994 meter ( ± 40 meter accuracy) depth reported at the top of this article, measured by the United States Center for Coastal & Ocean Mapping.

Low-lying coastal areas are often the most populated parts of islands, with villages, towns, agriculture, infrastructure and tourist development competing for space. Unfortunately, coasts are also particularly vulnerable to climate hazards and weather events. Particular vulnerabilities include loss of land and islands from sea level rise and loss of homes and lives from extreme weather events such as cyclones. The resulting impacts – coastal erosion, infrastructure damage, flooding and salt water intrusion – present a critical challenge to many Pacific island coastlines. Supported by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP), the Pacific Adaptation to Climate Change (PACC) programme is the first major climate change adaptation initiative in the Pacific region. Since it began in 2009 the programme has laid the groundwork for more resilient Pacific communities that can cope with climate variability today, and climate change tomorrow. This short video, narrated by renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, highlights the PACC projects that are working to reduce the vulnerability of island coasts.

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.

The 25-year-long sea level record from satellite altimetry: Lessons Learned, Remaining Gaps, New Scientific Questions Prof. Anny Cazenave LEGOS, Toulouse, France; ISSI, Bern, Switzerland 2019 H.L. Welsh Lectures in Physics, 2019-05-03 Sea level, one of the best indicators of climate change, is routinely monitored since 25 years at global and regional scales by a series of high-precision altimetry missions. In addition to having provided invaluable information on the large-scale ocean circulation, satellite altimetry has shown that the global mean sea level is not only rising but also accelerating, in response to ocean warming and land ice melt. Satellite altimetry has also revealed strong regional variability in the rates of sea level change, mostly driven by redistribution of heat and fresh water by the ocean circulation in response to internal climate variability. More generally, the altimetry record is now seen as extremely useful to address questions such as: Can we close the sea level budget over the altimetry era? What is the deep ocean contribution to sea level rise and its role in the current Earth’s energy imbalance? Can we already detect the anthropogenic forcing signature in the sea level signal and separate it from the internal/natural climate variability? While it is obviously highly important to ensure sustained and ever more accurate observations of global and regional sea level variations from space, new scientific questions are now emerging that also deserve new research investments. Among these, accurate monitoring from space of sea level changes at the coast, highly under-sampled by tide gauges, must be given top priority. Indeed, sea level rise at the coast remains almost unknown globally, although it is a major concern for populations living in low-lying coastal regions. New technology like Delay-Doppler and interferometric altimetry (e.g., onboard the Sentinel-3 and SWOT missions) will be particularly suitable to monitor sea level in coastal regions, offering important information on one major contributor to climate change impacts affecting coastal zones.

The Arctic may be free of ice for the first time in 10,000 years. Wadhams shows how sea ice is the 'canary in the mine' of planetary climate change. He describes how it forms and the vital role it plays in reflecting solar heat back into space and providing an 'air conditioning' system for the planet. Prof. Peter Wadhams is the UK’s most experienced sea ice scientist, with 48 years of research on sea ice and ocean processes in the Arctic and the Antarctic. This has focused on expeditions and measurements in the field, which has involved more than 50 expeditions to both polar regions, working from ice camps, icebreakers, aircraft, and, uniquely, Royal Navy submarines (6 submerged voyages to the North Pole ). His research group in Cambridge has been the only UK group with the capacity to carry out fieldwork on sea ice. He is Emeritus Professor of Ocean Physics and is the author of numerous publications on dynamics and thermodynamics of sea ice, sea ice thickness, waves in ice, icebergs, ocean convection and kindred topics. The current main topics of research in the group are sea ice properties, dynamics, and distributions in thickness and concentration. He is also a pioneer in the use of AUVs (autonomous underwater vehicles) under sea ice, using multibeam sonar to map bottom features, work which he has also been done from UK nuclear submarines. He began his research career at the Scott Polar Research Institute, Cambridge University, where he rose to become Director. He moved to DAMTP in 2001. He has also held visiting professorships in Tokyo (National Institute of Polar Research), Monterey (US Naval Postgraduate School), Seattle (University of Washington) and La Jolla (Green Scholar at Scripps Institution of Oceanography). He was the coordinator of several European Union Arctic flagship projects (ESOP, GreenICE, CONVECTION, and others) and is currently on the Steering Committee of the EU ICE-ARC project as well as a major US Office of Naval Research initiative in the Arctic. He served eight years on the Scientific Committee of the European Environment Agency and had served on panels of the National Academy of Sciences (USA). In 1990 he received the Italgas Prize for Environmental Sciences, and he has also been awarded the Polar Medal (UK) (1987) and the W.S. Bruce Prize of the Royal Society of Edinburgh. As well as being Professor at Cambridge he is an Associate Professor at the Laboratoire d’Océanographie de Villefranche, run by Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, and is a Professor at the Università Politecnica Delle Marche, Ancona. He is a Member of the Finnish Academy and is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. His most recent book, “A Farewell to Ice”, documents the ways in which the retreat of sea ice in the Arctic generates feedbacks which impact the entire global climate system, accelerating the rate of warming, the rate of sea level rise, the emission of methane from the offshore, and the occurrence of weather extremes affecting food production. He contends that catastrophic consequences cannot be avoided without making an all-out effort to develop ways of directly capturing carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere.

Available in HD. On the basis of tide level data it is known that the sea level is rising since 1990 by almost 2 cm per decade on global average. Since the early 1990s, satellite measurements show a higher value of 3 cm per decade, such that the global sea level has risen by about 20cm since 1900. On a regional scale, however, the impact of dynamic changes in the climate system on the sea level is often of greater importance. Through a synthesis of observed data with a dynamic ocean model it was attempted to reconstruct these changes for the last 60 years. The elastic deformation of the Earth and gravitational and rotational changes are not part of this reconstruction. In particular, climate modes such as the North Atlantic Oscillation and El Niño affect regional patterns of sea level variability strongly as it is visible for the strong El Niño during 1997/98. The eastward shift of the warm water associated with the El Niño phase produces, for example, sea level changes of more than 20cm.The increase that takes place over the entire period thus remains almost unnoticed to the viewer.

Sea level rise is an immediate consequence of global warming which is already happening at an alarming rate. Rising waters threaten billions of human beings living in low level coastal areas and force them to migrate. Sea level rise migration, however, is not merely a coastal hazard. New studies show that the impacts of sea level rise migration could ripple far inland. http://www.climamedia.com [email protected] Source: Hauer, Mathew, "Migration induced by sea-level rise could reshape the US population landscape" Nature Climate Change, 7, 321-325 (2017).

Designer Martin Varjic has drawn a map that shows what the world will look like if all of the polar ice melts and the sea level swells 260 feet. Environmentalists often talk about the dire effects of melting polar caps and rising sea levels, but the projected consequences can at times seem a bit abstract. As a means of making the situation more concrete, graphic designer Martin Vargic has drawn a vision of the future using the long-established techniques of cartography. His map shows what the world will look like if all of the polar ice melts and the sea level swells 260 feet. Instantly noticeable is that the continents shrink quite a bit. Closer examination shows that along with the disappearance current coastlines, major urban areas will end up under water as well. London, New Orleans, Berlin and Amsterdam will be no more. Parts of Brazil will also be lost, along with chunks of Miami, and Washington D.C. Said Vargic his rendering is an attempt to bring "traditional cartography to a contemporary setting, while reminding us about the dangers of global warming and subsequent climate change." How likely is it that his vision will come to pass? According to National Geographic, if everything continues as it is today, very. In time, modern conditions could cause the average temperature on the planet to increase from 58 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

26,500 years ago an ice sheets covered large parts of North America. This ice sheet weighed down Earh's crust and regions around the edges bulged up. Melting of the ice sheet caused Earth's crust to rebound. The ice sheet disappeared 7,000 years ago but the crust is still rebounding today. The regions that were at the edge of the ice sheet are now sinking and experiencing heightened sea level rise. Animation by Natalie Renier, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

MP3 & SHOW NOTES: http://themindrenewed.com/interviews/2013/218-int-18 According to the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPPC), Global Sea Level is rising at an alarming rate, threatening millions who live in coastal regions and islands around the world, thanks to the global-warming activities of human beings on planet Earth. To challenge these claims, we are joined by Dr. Nils-Axel Mörner, former Expert Reviewer for the IPCC, and erstwhile Head of Paleogeophysics & Geodynamics at the University of Stockholm in Sweden, whose research into sea levels around the globe paints a very different picture.

This film demonstrates how coastal communities can adapt to sea level rise by restoring nature’s resilience. New research shows that sea level could rise between 0.5 to 2 meters towards the end of this century - threatening low-lying regions with floods and storm surges. The health of many ecosystems, which traditionally were able to cope with shifts in sea levels have been weakened, leaving them less able to protect coastal communities from these impacts. The video also offers ways to restore natural flood barriers, like coral reefs and mangroves, to protect vulnerable regions from sea level rise.

This video shows the evolution in time of sea level anomalies from IMOS’ (Integrated Marine Observing System) gridded product. It also shows the decisions taken when manually tracking large anticyclonic eddies formed at the East Australian Current retroflection. An anticyclonic eddy is here considered as a positive sea level anomaly with a closed contour and values larger than 0.1 m. A sea level anomaly is the difference between the total sea level and the average sea level for this time of year. Positive anomalies are regions with higher sea level than the average, and negative anomalies are regions with lower sea level than the average.

Island residents didn't see it coming, but quick thinking saved most houses from the waves -- for now. December is normally the stormy season on three small islands in Manus Province, Papua New Guinea. But nothing in history had prepared the islanders for the unprecedented fury of the 2008 storm they called King Tide. Having engaged in community wide rescue operations with no government help, residents are bracing for more extreme weather this year -- at the very time that delegates will be meeting in Copenhagen to decide policy on climate change. If the islanders could go, they would ask: who is responsible for the rising seas and angry storms? Who's responsible for our relocation costs? The video is produced by MATUSA (Manus Tumbuna Save association), to raise awareness on how Manus Islanders in Papua New Guinea are being affected by sea level rising and climate change. The Filming is done by Ngenge Sasa, Lou Island, PNG. The film is presented in public for the first time at the National Museum of American Indian, during the symposium co-organized by Conversations with the Earth in October 2011. The project was facilitated by InsightShare as part of the conversation with the earth project. Conversations with the Earth is a collective opportunity to build a global movement for an indigenous-controlled community media network. CWE works with a growing network of indigenous groups and communities living in critical ecosystems around the world, from the Atlantic Rainforest to Central Asia, from the Philippines to the Andes, from the Arctic to Ethiopia. Through CWE, these indigenous communities are able to share their story of climate change. Through the creation of sustainable autonomous indigenous media hubs in these regions, CWE fosters a long-term relationship with these communities, based on principles of local control and supporting indigenous media capacity.

Edward Kwame Aklade, VoicesofAfrica mobile reporter in Accra, Ghana (3 May 2010) Fisher folks living within the James-Town metropolis, a fishing community in the Greater Accra Region are threatened by the increase in sea level which is gradually depleting the lands at the coastal areas thereby destroying several properties and rendering most indigenes homeless. The sudden rise in the sea level has been attributed to the melting of the polar ice at the temperate regions hence increasing the volume of the water. Majority of Ghanaian fisher folks resides with their families at the coastal areas because of the nearness to the sea in other to earn their daily bread. For some years now, the indigenes complain that they have noted a constant rise in sea level which also to destroys their canoes and their homes. 65 year old madam Acquaye during an interview said they feel unsafe but they have no place to go since they have lived their lives all by the coast. At the Sakumono-Tema road for instance, the sea have eaten very deep unto the road. The situation is more dangerous when the sea overflows its banks unto the road endangering motorists and pedestrians who ply the road. Though the government of Ghana have adopted a defence measure to safeguard the sea from further destroying the road by blocking the waves with some heavy rocks, much more effort is still expected from all stake holders because the heat is still on.
