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.

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.

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.

Global sea level rise is accelerating incrementally over time rather than increasing at a steady rate, as previously thought, according to a new study based on 25 years of NASA and European satellite data. If the rate of ocean rise continues to change at this pace, sea level will rise 26 inches (65 centimeters) by 2100--enough to cause significant problems for coastal cities.

A new scientific survey has found that the glaciers of the Arctic are the world’s biggest contributors to rising seas, shedding ice at an accelerating rate that now adds well over a millimeter to the level of the ocean every year. That is considerably more ice melt than Antarctica is contributing, even though the Antarctic contains far more ice. Still, driven by glacier clusters in Alaska, Canada and Russia and the vast ice sheet of Greenland, the fast-warming Arctic is outstripping the entire ice continent to the south — for now...

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.

Global ice sheets are melting fast. This is resulting in release of loads of fresh water into the ocean, resulting in increase of sea level. If this goes on and all the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica melt away, it will result in increase of seal level by 216 feet (~ 65m). Here is a video explaining the ice loss, temperature variation and the probable inundation that will be seen in India and it's regions with increasing sea levels.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

If global climate efforts fail and we continue to burn fossil fuels and dump carbon dioxide into the atmosphere as we do now, it would lead to “five degrees in warming” of the Hindu Kush Himalayan (HKH) region and a loss of two-thirds of the glaciers.This report is the first and most authoritative study of its kind to provide an assessment of one of the world’s most significant, yet overlooked, mountain regions. Developed over five years, it includes insight by more than 350 researchers and policy experts from 22 countries and 185 organizations. With 210 authors, 20 review editors and 125 external reviewers, it provides an unprecedented insight into the region’s distinct environment, people and wildlIFE.

Series of four films about climate change in the Caribbean Islands. The global climate is changing, and the Caribbean region is feeling the change. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), in its Fourth Assessment Report (2007), stated that climate change is unequivocal. Observed trends include higher global surface temperatures, sea level rise, changes in rainfall patterns, and higher frequency and intensity of extreme events such as floods, droughts and heat waves. The impacts of climate change are particularly worrying for the Caribbean, with many small island states that are extremely vulnerable: Hurricanes have increased in intensity since the 1970s, and it is likely that we will see further increases during the 21st century. Sea level rise is expected to exacerbate inundation, storm surge and other coastal hazards. Coastal conditions are likely to deteriorate, for example through beach erosion and coral bleaching. Water resources in many islands are expected to become insufficient to meet demand during low-rainfall periods. New climate patterns are expected to change the geographic range of mosquito-borne diseases (such as malaria and dengue), as well as increase heat stroke and other health risks, notably for children and the elderly. The potential implications of these climatic changes are enormous, not only from the perspective of disaster risk reduction but also with regards to regional development. Economic activities such as tourism, fisheries and agriculture are very sensitive to climatic conditions. Climate change threatens vital infrastructure, settlements and facilities that support livelihoods. While the worst long-term effects may still be avoided if greenhouse gas emissions are drastically reduced, global climate change is here to stay -- and will accelerate. The Caribbean region has no choice but to cope with the impacts of climate change, which may be aggravated by increasing vulnerability resulting from unsound environmental practices, demographic changes, social inequities and economic short-sightedness. Additionally, there is the risk that the increased occurrence of climate-related disasters may trap people in vicious circles: if the most vulnerable communities are hit more frequently or intensely, they become even more vulnerable to disasters.

On Monday, Scientists said that the number of people who could be displaced in U.S. coastal regions due to rising sea levels this century because of climate change is much higher than previously thought, with more than 13 million Americans at risk by the year 2100. In their study, the researchers found that Florida faces the greatest risk, with up to 6 million residents projected to be affected if sea levels rise over 6 feet, followed by Louisiana and California. For the research, scientists assessed sea level change scenarios by 2100 from the U.S. Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for coastal states along with population growth trends and projections in high-risk areas. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/domesticNews/~3/hURORAry6ok/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

This video shows the evolution in time of sea level anomalies from Aviso’s “2-sats” gridded product (available at: http://www.aviso.altimetry.fr). 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.

This visualization shows total sea level change between 1992 and 2014, based on data collected from the TOPEX/Poseidon, Jason-1, and Jason-2 satellites. Blue regions are where sea level has gone down, and orange/red regions are where sea level has gone up. Since 1992, seas around the world have risen an average of nearly 3 inches. The color range for this visualization is -7 cm to +7 cm (-2.76 inches to +2.76 inches), though measured data extends above and below 7cm(2.76 inches). This particular range was chosen to highlight variations in sea level change. To learn more, visit: http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/details.cgi?aid=4345
