Sea level rise is so much more than melting ice
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.

"Expert Judgment and Uncertainty Quantification for Sea Level Rise" Michael Oppenheimer - 2015-09-15
Michael Oppenheimer, Albert G. Milbank Professor of Geosciences and International Affairs, Woodrow Wilson School. Director, Center for Science Technology and Environmental Policy Tuesday, September 15 at 12:30 PM - Guyot Hall Room 10 Structural uncertainty in models presents a longstanding obstacle to estimating future sea level rise. The model-based range of projections is often used to characterize uncertainty. However, this approach is inadequate when applied to sea level rise due to the known deficiencies of ice sheet models in combination with the growing significance of the ice sheet contribution. In its Fifth Assessment Report, the IPCC extended uncertainty analysis for sea level rise by applying ad hoc expert judgments about the possible effect of such model deficiencies, an approach the IPCC has also used in assessing uncertainty for climate sensitivity. Oppenheimer and colleagues propose a new approach utilizing expert judgment that combines an experience-weighted version of formalized expert elicitation with probabilistic inversion of parameterized physical models.

Watching the Sea Level Rise | Remko Scharroo | TEDxRheinMainSalon
How do we actually measure the rising sea levels? Remko Scharroo tells us how - and what satellites have to do with this. Remko is a remote sensing scientist at the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) in Darmstadt. He specialises in the production and analysis of sea surface height data from satellite radar altimeters. He is a stickler for precision, asking ever more from the measurements taken from these satellites over the decades. He loves a good scientific discussion, and also to carry his enthusiasm for his field of work to others.

Migration Expert Urges Immediate Action as Millions Are Already Displaced by Climate Change
https://democracynow.org - Researchers here at Bonn warn Pacific Islanders may be among the first to be forced to migrate due to climate change, as sea level rise threatens to make whole islands uninhabitable. But island nations are not the only places where climate change is threatening to force people from their homes. Last year, around the world, at least 23 million people were displaced by extreme weather. “If we act now in terms of climate change action, … it means we support for people to stay in their homes. … Let’s not make migration a last resort, a tragedy,” says Dina Ionesco, the head of migration, environment and climate change at the International Organization for Migration.

Scientist Alex Gardner explains Climate and Sea Level Rise (Feb 2017)
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? The von Kármán Lecture Series: 2017 https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/events/lectures_archive.php?year=2017&month=2 Speaker: Alex S.

The New Normal, Super Storms,  High Tides and Rising Seas by John Englander
Expert Panel Host: John Englander (A podcast version of this video is available on iTunes.) • For 6,000 years sea level has changed little. Now it it has started rising again, moving the shoreline too. John Englander explains: * The science behind sea level rise, plus the myths and partial truths used to confuse the issue. * The surprising forces that will cause sea level to rise for 1,000 years, as well as the possibility of catastrophic rise this century. * Why the devastating economic effects will not be limited to the coasts. * Why coastal property values will go “underwater” long before the land does, perhaps as early as this decade. * Five points of “intelligent adaptation” that can help individuals, businesses, and communities protect investments now and in the future. John Englander is an oceanographer, consultant and sea level rise expert. His broad marine science background coupled with degrees in geology and economics allows him to see the big picture on climate and look ahead to the large-scale financial and societal impacts, particularly as they relate to sea level rise. He brings the diverse points of view of an industry scientist, entrepreneur and CEO. For over 30 years, he has been a leader in both the private sector and the non-profit arena, serving as CEO for such noteworthy organizations as The Cousteau Society and The International SeaKeepers Society. As the Founder of the Rising Seas Group, he works with businesses, government agencies, and communities helping them understand the financial risks of sea level rise. His best selling book, High Tide On Main Street: Rising Sea Level and the Coming Coastal Crisis, clearly explains the science behind sea level rise, the impending devastating economic impacts and the “intelligent adaptation” that all businesses and coastal communities must consider today. Mr. Englander is a sought after keynote speaker. His recent media appearances include MSNBC, Fox Business Channel, Al Jazeera America, ABC, CCTV, National Public Radio (NPR), and SkyNews TV-UK. He has been featured in USA Today, Huffington Post, the San Francisco Chronicle, and Publisher’s Weekly. – See more at: http://www.johnenglander.net/bio-john-englander

Sea level rise isn’t just happening, it’s getting faster
- My name is Sali, I am AI - Please donate me, Your donation will help us get more videos - Link donate : paypal.me/saliAI - Thanks all my friends :) In at least the third such study published in the past year, scientists have confirmed seas are rising, and the rate of sea level rise is increasing as time passes — a sobering punchline for coastal communities that are only now beginning to prepare for a troubling future. [ Scientists say the rate of sea level rise has nearly tripled since 1990] What was a 2.2 millimeter per year rise in 1993 was a 3.3 millimeter rise in 2014, based on estimates of the mass changes of a number of key components of sea level rise, such as the melting of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets, the study in Nature Climate Change found. That’s the difference between 0.86 and 1.29 inches per decade – and the researchers suggest further sea level acceleration could be in store. [ 11 animated maps showing how sea level rise could change the shapes of Maine towns] The chief cause of the acceleration was the melting of the Greenland ice sheet, which went from contributing less than 5 percent of all sea level rise in 1993 to contributing more than 25 percent in 2014, the study found. The loss of ice in Antarctica and smaller glaciers over the same time period also contributed to quicker sea level rise. The increase in the rate of sea level rise “highlights the importance and urgency of mitigating climate change and formulating coastal adaptation plans to mitigate the impacts of ongoing sea level rise,” write Xianyao Chen of the Ocean University of China and Qingdao National Laboratory of Marine Science and Technology, and colleagues. Chen’s co-authors hailed from institutions in China, Australia and the United States. “We understand why the sea level is accelerating and we’re understanding what the components are contributing,” Christopher Harig, one of the study’s authors and a researcher at the University of Arizona, said. Earlier this year, a different group of researchers found sea level rise was only about 1.1 millimeters per year before 1990, whereas in the period between 1993 through 2012 it was 3.1 millimeters per year. NASA, at present, puts the rate of sea level rise at 3.4 millimeters per year. But while the individual estimates differ, the broader picture is that researchers generally agree that the rate of sea level rise is increasing – and that this will have major consequences for coastal regions, which will have less time to adapt if sea level rise acceleration continues. “I think it’s gotten to the point where the observation is pretty robust,” Harig said. In the latest paper, researchers re-examined the recent satellite record to derive a clearer picture of sea level rise acceleration and considered each of the individual components of sea level rise, which make up the so-called sea level “budget.” They then found that the different parts of the budget matched up well with measurements of sea level change taken by satellite altimeters over the past two decades. “We’ve known the bottom line total sea level change over the last couple decades, and we’ve known the individual components on a year-by-year basis,” Bob Kopp, a Rutgers University sea level expert who was not involved in the study but is familiar with the work, said. “We’ve known the two match up pretty well. The authors show that, when you look a bit more sharply at the year-to-year total, it’s quite close to the total of the individual components. The sums work, not just on average but in each year. This increases confidence in the overall result.” The key components of sea level rise in this equation include thermal expansion of ocean water as it heats up – previously the dominant component but, as the study notes, not any more – and the melting of Greenland, Antarctica and smaller glaciers distributed across the globe. Finally, there is terrestrial water storage or loss if, due to rainfall or other factors, the continents end up storing more water on their surfaces, or alternatively, lose it to the ocean. The new study finds that losses of ice, and from Greenland in particular, are now becoming a bigger contributor to sea level rise than thermal expansion. And it notes rather pointedly that this contrasts with what the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the top authority on climate science, predicted would unfold across the course of the century in 2013. The more Greenland and Antarctica contribute to sea level rise, the higher it can go, since these are the two largest sources of land-based ice on the planet. For coastal communities, Harig said, the significance of the paper is that there’s no way to avoid the reality that sea level rise acceleration, which was already expected to occur based on scientific projections, is now here.

Largest Glacier East Antarctic may add to Sea Level Rise (Totten Glacier)
Totten Glacier, the largest glacier in East Antarctica, is being melted from below by warm water that reaches the ice when winds over the ocean are strong — a cause for concern because the glacier holds more than 11 feet of sea level rise and acts as a plug that helps lock in the ice of the East Antarctic Ice Sheet. “Totten has been called the sleeping giant because it’s huge and has been seen as insensitive to changes in its environment,” said lead author Chad Greene https://news.utexas.edu/2017/11/01/winds-driving-warm-water-under-east-antarctic Jamin Greenbaum on Circumpolar Deepwater https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZtkRKZ09kmQ Wind Driving Warm Water Under East Antarctica's Totten Glacier Ice Shelf https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fx56rbki_kI Expert explains Future Sea Level Rise (2017) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAPPq43iRLs

Sea level rise estimates doubled
Brady Dennis and Chris Mooney from The Washington Post, recently reported on updated sea level rise projections. Sea levels could rise nearly twice as much as previously predicted by the end of this century if carbon dioxide emissions continue unabated, an outcome that could devastate coastal communities around the globe, according to new research published Wednesday. The main reason? Antarctica. Scientists behind a new study published in the journal Nature used sophisticated computer models to decipher a longstanding riddle about how the massive, mostly uninhabited continent surrendered so much ice during previous warm periods on Earth. They found that similar conditions in the future could lead to monumental and irreversible increases in sea levels. If high levels of greenhouse gas emissions continue, they concluded, oceans could rise by close to two meters in total (more than six feet) by the end of the century. The melting of ice on Antarctica alone could cause seas to rise more than 15 meters (49 feet) by 2500. The startling findings paint a far grimmer picture than current consensus predictions, which have suggested that seas could rise by just under a meter at most by the year 2100. Those estimates relied on the notion that expanding ocean waters and the melting of relatively small glacierswould fuel the majority of sea level rise, rather than the massive ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica.

Modeling the Impact of Sea Level Change (Audio)
Paul Kirshen examines the threat of rising sea levels brought about by climate change, and discusses how serious the threat is. An internationally recognized expert in integrated water resources management, he has developed detailed models mapping the impact of sea level rise on coastal communities in New England, Florida, and California. Kirshen has been conducting research on climate change since 1988 and leads an initiative to develop a climate change adaptation practice that will address the multidimensional impacts of climate change. This talk is part of Cambridge Forum's After Copenhagen: Global Climate Change Conference, recorded by Steve MacAusland.

Evening Lecture | Jeremy Jackson: Sea Level Rise is Dangerous
By Daniel L. Kuester, U.S. Naval War College Public Affairs Feb. 4, 2014 NEWPORT, R.I. – Author, researcher and marine biologist Jeremy Jackson gave a presentation titled “Sea Level Rise is Dangerous” at U.S. Naval War College (NWC), Feb. 3, addressing environmental changes and the implications of those events on people. “The threats to the ocean life that I love are, if anything, more dangerous to us than they are to the natural life of the oceans,” said Jackson. Jackson said the sea level has risen seven to eight inches since 1900, due to the expansion of sea water from rising temperatures and melting ocean ice. The future effects of continued sea level rise on coastal cities such as New York, Miami and New Orleans remains unknown. “The latest IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) projection, which is very conservative, is for about one to three feet,” said Jackson. One of the reasons for this variance, according to Jackson, is that 80 percent of fresh water is locked up in ice in Greenland and Antarctica, making it difficult for climate experts to predict how those regions will react to rising temperatures. “If Greenland melted tomorrow, sea level might be 23 feet higher,” said Jackson. “If Antarctica were to melt, sea levels might rise by 100 feet. “It is highly unlikely that Greenland is going to melt in the next 100 years, which is good news, but it is incredibly worrying that there are rivers of meltwater pouring off of Greenland 24 hours a day.” The dangers of such rise would mean that millions of people in the U.S. and around the world, as well as trillions of dollars in infrastructure, would need to be relocated or lost. This was Jackson’s second visit to the college discussing the dangers of the topic. To watch his January 2013 lecture titled “Ocean Apocalypse,” visit http://youtu.be/2zMN3dTvrwY. Author of seven books, Jackson has worked for Geosciences Research division at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego and is also the former director of the school’s Center for Marine Biodiversity and Conservation.

Cities Adaptations to Sea Level Rise: Kristina Hill
Since we don’t yet know how fast and how high sea levels are going to rise, Berkeley urban designer Kristina Hill stresses that our strategies must be ready and be adaptive as conditions change. Rising seas pose multiple dangers. Groundwater rises on top of sea level causing inland flooding. What can we do to prepare? A fundamental principle of landscape architecture -- "dig a hole, make a mound” -- offers a time-tested strategy, she argues. As groundwater levels rise, the “holes,” i.e. ponds and canal systems, can store excess water. They contain and re-direct floods, helping us live with water like the Dutch. The earth from the ponds can be used to build levees called superdikes, with an extra-wide wetland edge on the Bay side. Floating housing on the ponds would serve to protect from both flood and earthquake damage. This strategy would solve both housing needs and environmental concerns, aligning interests that are often opposed while adapting to a changing climate.
