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.

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.

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...

The rising sea is the sleeping giant of climate change. Although we now know it's happening, how high will it go? In an attempt to predict what impact the rising waters will have on our world, scientists are turning to the distant past.
Views: 19990 ABC Science
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.

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.

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.

The news that is available to the people is mostly rumor, and you also know that there are no feet of rumor, that is why it spreads very fast. But global warming is such a thing which we can do to sweat. Do not know if you will ever notice or not. Miami is the city and it used to be all around this island. But this was the red plate which was also land on the same, but due to global warming, the water level of the sea came up so much, that is, according to the report, 20 feet water has come up there. So this is not just about here, but on every seafront of the world there is something like this on our earth. If India speaks of the UN, by 2050, more than 4 million people in India are at risk. Especially the people of Mumbai and Kolkata city. Together, Bangladesh and China will be the same. The Dhaka-Dhaka and Shanghai city of China will also be covered. Science also has indicated about the destruction of the Earth. That day is not far away when the Earth's dust will start from the 2 million 24 thousand miles of the earth with a moat in the sea. Because the melting snow of the Pole region has caused trouble to emerge. If you remember, a few weeks ago, a 5800 sq. Km large frost had broken apart in Antarctica. This is not a small thick iceberg, this iceberg is 4 times bigger than the heart of India. Its estimated weight is more than 1000 million tonnes. Due to the separation from Antarctica, this iceberg will now roam the ocean and there will be a danger for ships coming out there. NASA's Aqua Moody's Satellite has been monitoring the iceberg for a long time. Because in Antarctica, the crack was seen in the ice some time ago. Which means that at any place, a big piece of ice will be separated from Antarctica. Increasing temperature has caused an increase in the incidence of ice fragmentation in Antarctica. In the year 2000, ice fragment of 11000 square kilometers was separated, which was the biggest event till date. His name was A-68. If the look of the threat was seen in the iceberg, the Titanic ship collided with such a piece of ice and was devastated. Now the iceberg that breaks apart, keeps roaming in the water of the sea, and by changing its place again and again it will melt. From which the fragment of a big ice melt will come from the sea level of the countries near the equator. And many small island insides in the Pacific Ocean and Indian Ocean will go to Dubai. Scientists in the North Antarctica research team say that in the state of the big ice only five big ice pieces remain. From that place called "Markham Ice Shield" was separated from the island of Ellesmere in August. In the last decade, due to the rest of the Earth, Antarctica has increased the temperature by a lot of speed, which is a huge problem. Because people have developed indiscriminate development, they have created problems for the earth itself. And if all the pigs in the Dhruv state get piggy in one go, then the entire sea level of the world will increase to 60 ft and also the coastal cities will be submerged in the water. By 2050, Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia and the Philippines have the potential to increase the sea level, and all of them are 5 million 80 million, that is why many people are at risk. But more than that, most of the government in the world is ignoring this issue. As the time passes, the earth will continue to dwindle, and the sea will continue to grow. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Music by : Fanfare for Space by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/...)

Images have emerged of a remarkable event in Greenland that took place this summer. A huge part of the Helheim Glacier fell into the ocean. A group of American scientists was on hand to capture it on camera. It's more evidence they say, of the effects of global warming and the clear dangers of rising sea levels.

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.

#COP21 @UNDP undo.org/cop21 Boobu Tioram, a resident of the Pacific island of Kirabati, took time out from reinforcing a seawall in front of his newly built house to speak with UNDP about what climate change has meant to his way of life. I have moved three times, every three years I have moved, he said, standing on the beach a few metres from his home. Tioram gestured toward a point about 20 metres into the sea, and explained that his first house once stood on a spot now covered in swelling ocean waves. Each time he has moved farther inland, and each time the sea has followed. Im not sure how long Ill be [in this house], Tioram continued. That depends on how strong my seawall here can withstand high tide waves. UNDP believes that it is the developing world that stands to lose the most, and which is already losing out, as the effects of climate change edge toward the catastrophic. As climate negotiations open in Copenhagen, worlds away from this tiny Pacific nation consisting of 33 low lying atolls, it is important to keep in mind that for the people of Kirabati, and other poor island and coastal nations, funds for adaptation and not only prevention must top the international to-do list. Carbon trading will be of no special consequence to us, so there has got to be some very special provisions for the victims, said Kirabati President Anote Tong. Not the potential victims, but the victims, because we are the victims, so there has to be some very deep soul searching. Kirabati is no more than four metres high at its highest point, and 100 percent of the population lives within one kilometre of the coast, making this nation one of the most vulnerable to the effects of global warming. Its future is uncertain, including the question of whether it even has a future anymore. The scientific research shows that by 2100 its almost certain that well have more than a metre of sea level rise, said Karen Bernard, a UNDP programme specialist in natural disaster reduction and transition. On a flat island like Kirabati that mount of sea level rise comes very far inland. Its a very serious situation, Bernard continued. For that reason, the Government is looking for options for relocating the population.

Sea-level rise is one of the inevitable results of global warming, as warmer ocean waters expand and land ice is melting and adding 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. Available in English are Our Threatened Oceans (2009, with Katherine Richardson) and The Climate Crisis (2010, with David Archer).

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.

Climate change and rising sea levels mean the island nation of Kiribati in the South Pacific is at risk of disappearing into the sea. But the island’s inhabitants aren’t giving up. They are doing what they can to save their island from inundation. Can COP23 help make a difference? UN estimates indicate that Kiribati could disappear in just 30 or 40 years. That’s because the average elevation is less than two meters above sea level. And some of the knock-on effects of climate change have made the situation more difficult. Kiribati can hardly be surpassed in terms of charm and natural beauty. There are 33 atolls and one reef island – spread out over an area of 3.5 million square kilometers. All have white, sandy beaches and blue lagoons. Kiribati is the world’s largest state that consists exclusively of atolls. A local resident named Kaboua points to the empty, barren land around him and says, "There used to be a large village here with 70 families." But these days, this land is only accessible at low tide. At high tide, it's all under water. Kaboua says that sea levels are rising all the time, and swallowing up the land. That’s why many people here build walls made of stone and driftwood, or sand or rubbish. But these barriers won't stand up to the increasing number of storm surges. Others are trying to protect against coastal erosion by planting mangrove shrubs or small trees. But another local resident, Vasiti Tebamare, remains optimistic. She works for KiriCAN, an environmental organization. Vasiti says: "The industrialized countries -- the United States, China, and Europe -- use fossil fuels for their own ends. But what about us?" Kiribati's government has even bought land on an island in Fiji, so it can evacuate its people in an emergency. But Vasiti and most of the other residents don't want to leave. _______ Exciting, powerful and informative – DW Documentary is always close to current affairs and international events.
