Projected Sea Level Rise

This episode explores the most recent IPCC predictions on sea-level rise, which indicates a global rise by 52-98 cm by the year 2100 and if aggressive emissions reductions are undertaken, a rise by 28-61 cm. You will also look closer at regional sea-level projections and understand why indications show a relatively high sea-level rise at low latitudes (in the tropics) and below-average sea-level rise at high latitudes. Professor Rahmstorf will walk you through this effect, highlighting how this is primarily because of the polar location of ice masses whose reduced gravitational pull accentuates the rise in their far-field, the tropics.

Efforts are modest compared to heat rising.
