Sea level rise is so much more than melting ice
 
06:09
While researching climate change, we heard something confusing: the sea level in New York City is rising about one and a half times faster than the global average. We couldn’t figure out what that meant. Isn’t the sea level...flat? So we called up an expert and went down the rabbit hole. And, we did our best to visualize her truly bizarre answers with animations, dioramas, and a lot of melting ice.

Sea-level rise
 
05:16
Although it may not be immediately obvious when we visit the beach, sea-level rise is affecting coastlines all over the world. For low-lying countries such as the Netherlands, sea-level rise and tidal surges are a constant threat. Our oceans are rising as a consequence of climate change. As the temperature of seawater increases it expands and the ice melting from ice sheets and glaciers adds more water to the global ocean. We know this because satellites high above our heads measure the temperature of the sea surface and of our changing ice. While the global averaged trend is towards rising levels, there are many regional differences so that in some places it is rising and in other places it is falling. Satellites carrying altimeter instruments systematically measure the height of the sea surface so that sea-level rise can be closely monitored. Altimetry measurements over the last 25 years show that on average sea-level is rising about 3 mm a year and this rise is accelerating. ★ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/ESAsubscribe Check out our full video catalog: http://bit.ly/SpaceInVideos Follow ESA on Twitter: http://bit.ly/ESAonTwitter On Facebook: http://bit.ly/ESAonFacebook On Instagram: http://bit.ly/ESAonInstagram On Flickr: http://bit.ly/ESAonFlickr ESA is Europe's gateway to space.

The physical processes causing global sea-level rise are highlighted in the animation. The main causes are thermal expansion of oceans, as they accumulate the excess heat caused by greenhouse gas emissions, the melting of ice from the ice sheets and glaciers, as well as changes in land water storage such as lakes. Regionally, sea level changes vary quite dramatically. The reasons for this are different to the global causes of sea-level changes and include changes to sea water density, influenced by salinity and temperature.

How Earth Would Look If All The Ice Melted
 
02:45
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.

Major Sea Level Rise in Near Future | Jason Briner | TEDxBuffalo
 
18:54
If you want to know what the changing climate is doing to the earth, ask someone who's been there. Jason Briner has been above the Arctic Circle more than 35 times. He takes the big topic of global warming and shows you what it's doing to a very important place in this talk. Jason P. Briner is an Associate Professor of Geology at the University at Buffalo. Briner’s research expertise lies in glaciers and climate, specifically in Arctic regions. His passion for Arctic environs obviously explains why, in 2005, Briner moved to Buffalo, NY. Briner has been above the Arctic Circle more than 35 times for his research, in the remote corners of Alaska, Arctic Canada, Greenland and Norway.

This is what sea level rise will do to coastal cities
 
07:19
Sea level rise is already redrawing coastlines around the world. What happens when the coast retreats through a major city? We look at how the world map will change in the year 2100, and what coastal cities can do to defend themselves. Correction: An early version of this video suggested that researchers expect to see four feet of sea level rise by the end of the century. While researchers do expect to see at least that level of sea level rise in the future, the exact timing is difficult to project. We regret the error.

Shouldn't sea levels have risen by now?
 
09:29
Try Dashlane here: http://dashlane.com/simonclark Get 10% off now with my promo code: simonclark ! In this video I answer the question: 'isn't climate change supposed to have risen sea levels by now?' by looking at one dataset in some detail, and reviewing the scientific literature. Also: Kevin Costner's Waterworld. My video on stopping climate change: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GkbuV_a-rvs This video was light on the potential impacts of sea level rise. I wanted to focus specifically on the perception that sea levels have not changed, and spend time on the data. If you’re interested in the potential impacts then https://www.ipcc.ch/site/assets/uploads/2018/02/ar5_wgII_spm_en.pdf is a must read. Anthropogenic climate change (AGW) is a fickle bit of science, and like much of environmental science sometimes changes on (relatively) long timescales and global extent can hide in plain sight. That seems to be the case with sea level rise. The data is very clear: sea levels have been rising faster and faster over the past century, and this is not caused by natural variability. Humanity's carbon emissions are radiatively forcing the planet, causing net warming and so thermal expansion of the oceans and melting of ice sheets. It appears that this is going to become more and more painfully obvious as this century wears on, and so the sooner we take action the better.

Global sea level rise: climate change already submerged 5 islands in Solomon archipelago - TomoNews
 
01:20
ISABEL, SOLOMON ISLANDS — A new study led by University of Queensland researchers says that changes in global climate and the subsequent sea level rise has already led to the loss of multiple Pacific islands. The team of Australian scientists, after sifting through decades worth of historical insight from locals as well as time series aerial and satellite imagery, say that Isabel, one of the main islands of the Solomon archipelago, has already lost five of its reef islands. These islands were once densely vegetated but weren't populated, reported the Washington Post. However, another six islands on Isabel have declined in area by more than 20 percent between 1947 and 2014. Meanwhile, residents of the island of Nuatambu have been forced to relocate to the nearby main island of Choiseul because of flooding. Of the dozens of homes that once stood on Nuatambu, at least 11 have already been swept away by the rising waters. One town on the Solomon Islands' Taro Island began planning to relocate all of its residents in 2014 because the sea level rise threatens to swallow the land. According to the study, while the global average rate of sea level rise has been 3.2 millimeters per year since 1993, the Solomon Islands have experienced an average rise by about 7 to 10 millimeters per year since 1994. The research team, who published their study in the journal Environmental Research Letters on Friday, discovered that the sea level rise has destroyed villages that have existed since the 1930s, and has displaced numerous communities. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

09:37
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.

Sea Level Rise Projections until 2100, a nonlinear response?
 
02:35
Past sea level rise is not captured by models yet, in particular the response from ice sheets in Antarctica due to global warming. Projections therefore can often be regarded to potentially underestimate future sea level rise. For example, Overpeck et al. (2006), and Hansen (2007) suggest possibilities which could eventually lead to a nonlinear response from ice sheets - accelerating the current observed sea level rise. Projections assessed by the US National Research Council (2010, pages 243-250), including Overpeck et al. 2006 http://books.nap.edu/openbook.php?record_id=12782&page=243 James Hansen on Sea Level Rise (2007) http://iopscience.iop.org/1748-9326/2/2/024002 Sea level in the 5th IPCC report (Rahmstorf, 2013) http://www.realclimate.org/index.php/archives/2013/10/sea-level-in-the-5th-ipcc-report/ IPCC AR 2013 sea level rise discussion http://www.climatechange2013.org/images/uploads/WGIAR5_WGI-12Doc2b_FinalDraft_Chapter13.pdf Sea level rise map 6 meters NASA https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:6m_Sea_Level_Rise.jpg Music: The Kyoto Connection - The Way Of Waking Up (feat.

Climate change: California sea levels may rise higher than other places around the world - TomoNews
 
06:44
SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA — Researchers from the California Ocean Protection Council authority is warning that melting ice shelves in Antarctica could cause sea levels to rise, with the most dramatic increase expected in California. According to a report by the council’s Science Advisory Team, for every foot of global sea-level rise caused by the melting West Antarctic, sea levels will rise approximately 1.25 feet in the California coast. Researchers theorize that due to Earth’s rotation and gravitational pull, melting ice in Antarctica — particularly in the western portion — is pulled toward the California coast. This makes rising sea levels more dramatic in the region. In 2100, sea levels could rise as high as 6.9 feet in San Francisco and 7.1 feet in La Jolla. The council plans to hold a series of workshops and propose measures to address the danger of rising sea levels. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Crying dog breaks the internet’s heart — but this sad dog story has a happy ending" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4prKTN9bYQc -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

For over 20 years NASA has been tracking the global surface topography of the ocean in order to understand the important role it plays in our daily lives. Climate change is causing our ocean to warm and glaciers to melt, resulting in sea level rise. Since 1880, the global sea level has risen 8 inches; by 2100, it is projected to rise another 1 to 4 feet. :::LEARN MORE::: Key Indicators: Sea Level http://climate.nasa.gov/key_indicator...

Study Says We Could See 10 FOOT Sea Level Rise This Century From Climate Change
 
03:51
According to an alarming new study, the rate at which Antarctic sea ice is melting is growing exponentially, and as a result, we can expect sea level rises of up to 10 feet within the next century if we stay on this current trajectory. The oceans are warming faster than scientists had predicted and we are running out of time to address the greatest global crisis in our history. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains what’s happening and what needs to happen to prevent catastrophe.   Link – https://thinkprogress.org/new-study-antarctic-ice-loss-10-foot-sea-level-rise-49c7c8614848/ Link - https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/01/16/studies-show-ice-melting-and-ocean-warming-both-happening-much-faster-previously Become a member today!: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYWIEbibRcZav6xMLo9qWWw/join Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

In the last few months, we have had some pretty horrible studies come out showing just how little time we have left to fix the planet before we face some of the most catastrophic impacts of climate change. Well, adding onto that list of absolutely terrifying stories and studies that have come out is a new one showing that within the next century, actually by the end of this century, we could see sea level rise of up to 10 feet globally thanks to the rapidly accelerating melting of Antarctic ice cap, specifically the West Antarctic ice sheet. It's unstable. It is collapsing and it is melting is what this new study tells us, but it also tells us, oh, it's melting a little bit faster than we had predicted it would, and by the end of this century, if it melts the way it is now, if it stays constant, not even if it accelerates, but if it just stays constant. 10 foot sea level rise across the globe, 10 feet. To put that into perspective, a six foot sea level rise would put the entire tip of Florida for a good one, hundred and 50 miles from tip inland. That would all be underwater. Now. Those parts of Florida would be gone forever with just a six foot sea level rise at two foot sea level rise would destroy most of the barrier islands throughout the Gulf coast and some along the Atlantic coast to fleet, and yet we could be looking at 10 foot sea level rises within our lifetime if things stay constant, and that's the key because we have the opportunity right now to not stay constant. We have the opportunity right now to reverse course. There is still time. That clock is ticking faster and faster every day, but there's still time we could get off fossil fuels, we could be investing in renewable energy sources and infrastructure to carry that. The technology exists. We're just not using it and that's what's the most frustrating about all this. It's there. We're just not doing it and we have an administration right now that's doubling down on fossil fuels, cutting subsidies and renewable energy programs all together in order to burn more coal in order to rely more on fracked gas and conventional oil, so we're not reversing course. We're going head on into the same fuel sources that have caused this problem to begin with. I say there's still time. Me Personally, do I think as a, as a race, as a planet, as a country, are we going to do it? No. I have zero faith. I have no faith at all. I do not think it's going to happen. I think instead we're going to have to live with a world destroyed by climate change. Now, maybe that's just me, but we've seen how human beings are. We've seen how politics is. If you can look at all that and tell me you actually have faith in us as a, as a species to do something about this, then you're much more optimistic than I am. I don't want to sound gloom and doom. I don't want to say like, we're all screwed. We're all going to die, but I don't have faith in people anymore and I sure as hell don't have faith in our institutions to do what is necessary to fix this problem.

Sea level rise - fact & fiction: John Englander at TEDxBocaRaton

Sea level is rising for the first time in thousands of years. Oceanographer John Englander, author of "High Tide On Main Street" explains why it is unstoppable, regardless of efforts to be 'green' and sustainable. Using powerful images, he encourages us to embrace the new reality that the shoreline is moving, that we begin to adapt, while we also try to slow the warming. It is a positive message, "a glass half full, rather than half empty" -- though the glass will get higher each decade. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

Glacier Change and Sea Level Rise (live public talk)
 
01:11:58
Earth scientist Alex Gardner reveals a world of rapid change as seen through the eyes of a NASA glaciologist. Glaciers and ice sheets hold massive amounts of freshwater locked up as ice. These stores of freshwater feed water supplies that support millions of people around the world, raise global sea levels, and can even change the rate of Earth’s rotation. It is now nearly certain that as Earth’s atmosphere and oceans warm over the coming centuries, glaciers and ice sheets will continue to retreat and sea levels will continue to rise. The big question now is at what rate and by how much?

Climate change and increased atmospheric temperatures are predicted to cause a significant rise in sea level over the next 100-200 years. Scenarios that take into account rapid melting of the Greenland Ice Sheet and West Antarctic Ice Shelf warn of sea level rise of greater than 20 ft (6 meters) over the next couple centuries. This animation shows what that level of rise would (which will happen over a long period of time) might look like over a couple seconds. It uses very course scale global elevation data to visualize a rising sea affect and should NOT be considered highly accurate.
