Impact of asymmetric uncertainties in ice sheet dynamics on regional sea level projections

  
Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences, Vol. 17, No. 12. (04 December 2017), pp. 2125-2141, https://doi.org/10.5194/nhess-17-2125-2017

Abstract

Currently a paradigm shift is made from global averaged to spatially variable sea level change (SLC) projections. Traditionally, the contribution from ice sheet mass loss to SLC is considered to be symmetrically distributed. However, several assessments suggest that the probability distribution of dynamical ice sheet mass loss is asymmetrically distributed towards higher SLC values. Here we show how asymmetric probability distributions of dynamical ice sheet mass loss impact the high-end uncertainties of regional SLC projections across the globe. For this purpose ...

Abstract

[Excerpt: Key messages] [::] Observed climate change has had many impacts on terrestrial ecosystems, such as changes in soil conditions, advances in phenological stages, altitudinal and latitudinal migration of plant and animal species (generally northwards and upwards), and changes in species interactions and species composition in communities, including local extinctions. [::] The relative importance of climate change as a major driver of biodiversity and ecosystem change is projected to increase further in the future. In addition to climate change, human efforts to mitigate and adapt to ...

Snowfall-driven growth in East Antarctic ice sheet mitigates recent sea-level rise

  
Science, Vol. 308, No. 5730. (2005), pp. 1898-1901, https://doi.org/10.1126/science.1110662

Abstract

Satellite radar altimetry measurements indicate that the East Antarctic ice-sheet interior north of 81.6°S increased in mass by 45 ± 7 billion metric tons per year from 1992 to 2003. Comparisons with contemporaneous meteorological model snowfall estimates suggest that the gain in mass was associated with increased precipitation. A gain of this magnitude is enough to slow sea-level rise by 0.12 ± 0.02 millimeters per year. ...

 

European briefings - Climate change impacts and adaptation

  
In SOER 2015 - The European environment - state and outlook 2015 (18 February 2015)

Abstract

Global climate change impacts Europe in many ways, including: changes in average and extreme temperature and precipitation, warmer oceans, rising sea level and shrinking snow and ice cover on land and at sea. These have led to a range of impacts on ecosystems, socio-economic sectors and human health. Adaptation to the observed and projected impacts in coming decades is needed, complementary to global climate mitigation actions. The EU strategy on adaptation to climate change supports national adaptation strategies and other actions in ...

Assessment the impact of sea level rise on mangrove dynamics of Ganges delta in India using remote sensing and GIS

  
Journal of Environment and Earth Science, Vol. 4, No. 21. (2014), pp. 117-127

Abstract

The intertidal mangrove ecosystem of Indian Sundarban is now as a critical ecosystem due to climate change induced sea level rise. The present study analyses the responses, migration, destruction and vulnerability of the four deltaic mangrove ecosystem (Bakhali, Bulcherry, Dalhausie and Bangaduni Islands) along the ocean sides. The changes of these deltaic ecosystem studied by using GIS and remote sensing with collecting data about sea level of nearest tidal gauge station Haldia (2.59 ± 1.0 mm/year) and Diamond Harbor (4.67 ± ...

Changes and status of mangrove habitat in Ganges delta: case study in Indian part of Sundarbans

  
International Journal of Geology, Earth & Environmental Sciences, Vol. 4, No. 3. (2014), pp. 109-118

Abstract

This paper quantifies the changes and present status of mangrove forest in Indian part of Sundarban from 1975 to 2014 using Landsat MSS (1975), TM (1990), ETM (2002) and OLM (2014) satellite imageries. The study used two image processing techniques: Maximum Likelihood Classification for the Land use and land cover analysis and NDVI for the vegetation characteristics and their temporal changes. The research found that the area of mangrove gradually decreases from 203752 hector (44%) to 132723 hector (31 %) and the barren land increases from ...

The global impacts of extreme sea-level rise: a comprehensive economic assessment

  
Environmental and Resource Economics (2015), pp. 1-29, https://doi.org/10.1007/s10640-014-9866-9

Abstract

This paper investigates the world-wide economic cost of rapid sea-level rise of the kind that could be caused by accelerated ice flow from the West Antarctic and/or the Greenland ice sheets. Such an event would have direct impacts on economic activities located near the coastline and indirect impacts further inland. Using data from the DIVA model on sea floods, river floods, land loss, salinisation and forced migration, we analyse the effects of these damages in a computable general equilibrium model for ...

Consequences of Climate Change Damages for Economic Growth - A Dynamic Quantitative Assessment

  
OECD Economics Department Working Papers, Vol. 2014 (June 2014), 1135, https://doi.org/10.1787/5jz2bxb8kmf3-en

Abstract

This report focuses on the effects of climate change impacts on economic growth. Simulations with the OECD’s dynamic global general equilibrium model ENV-Linkages assess the consequences of a selected number of climate change impacts in the various world regions at the macroeconomic and sectoral level. This is complemented with an assessment of very long-run implications, using the AD-RICE model. The analysis finds that the effect of climate change impacts on annual global GDP is projected to increase over time, leading to ...

Deeply incised submarine glacial valleys beneath the Greenland ice sheet

  
Nature Geosci, Vol. 7, No. 6. (18 June 2014), pp. 418-422, https://doi.org/10.1038/ngeo2167

Abstract

The bed topography beneath the Greenland ice sheet controls the flow of ice and its discharge into the ocean. Outlet glaciers move through a set of narrow valleys whose detailed geometry is poorly known, especially along the southern coasts1, 2, 3. As a result, the contribution of the Greenland ice sheet and its glaciers to sea-level change in the coming century is uncertain4. Here, we combine sparse ice-thickness data derived from airborne radar soundings with satellite-derived high-resolution ice motion data through ...

 

Glaciology: Antarctic area is doomed to melt

  
Nature, Vol. 509, No. 7501. (21 May 2014), pp. 403-403, https://doi.org/10.1038/509403b

Abstract

Several of Antarctica's glaciers have already begun an unstoppable meltdown, two studies suggest. Eric Rignot at the University of California, Irvine, and his colleagues used satellite radar to measure the retreat of five glaciers in West Antarctica and found that there is nothing holding the ice sheets back from catastrophic collapse ...

 

Key West Antarctic glaciers retreating unstoppably

  

Abstract

[Excerpt] Radar observations of Amundsen Sea area suggest current melting will run away. Several of Antarctica’s most vulnerable glaciers have already begun a runaway meltdown, two new studies suggest. The work provides some of the first detailed forecasts on how quickly glaciers are likely to disappear from a region that has long concerned scientists. One modeling paper finds that ongoing losses at the Thwaites Glacier have permanently destabilized that ice river, which drains into West Antarctica’s Amundsen Sea. The second study ...

 

Marine Ice Sheet Collapse Potentially Under Way for the Thwaites Glacier Basin, West Antarctica

  
Science, Vol. 344, No. 6185. (16 May 2014), pp. 735-738, https://doi.org/10.1126/science.1249055

Abstract

The West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) is particularly vulnerable to ocean warming-induced collapse. The Thwaites Glacier of West Antarctica is one of the largest WAIS regional contributors to sea level rise, and has been considered to be potentially unstable for many years. Joughin et al. (p. 735) used a combination of a numerical model and observations of its recent geometry and movement to investigate the stability of the Thwaites Glacier. The glacier has already entered the early stages of collapse, and ...

 

Ice plug prevents irreversible discharge from East Antarctica

  
Nature Clim. Change, Vol. 4, No. 6. (4 June 2014), pp. 451-455, https://doi.org/10.1038/nclimate2226

Abstract

Changes in ice discharge from Antarctica constitute the largest uncertainty in future sea-level projections, mainly because of the unknown response of its marine basins1. Most of West Antarctica’s marine ice sheet lies on an inland-sloping bed2 and is thereby prone to a marine ice sheet instability3, 4, 5. A similar topographic configuration is found in large parts of East Antarctica, which holds marine ice equivalent to 19 m of global sea-level rise6, that is, more than five times that of West ...

 

Evaluating flood resilience strategies for coastal megacities

  
Science, Vol. 344, No. 6183. (02 May 2014), pp. 473-475, https://doi.org/10.1126/science.1248222

Abstract

Recent flood disasters in the United States (2005, 2008, 2012); the Philippines (2012, 2013); and Britain (2014) illustrate how vulnerable coastal cities are to storm surge flooding (1). Floods caused the largest portion of insured losses among all catastrophes around the world in 2013 (2). Population density in flood-prone coastal zones and megacities is expected to grow by 25% by 2050; projected climate change and sea level rise may further increase the frequency and/or severity of large-scale floods (3–7). ...

Sea level change along the Italian coast during the Holocene and projections for the future

  
Quaternary International, Vol. 232, No. 1-2. (15 February 2011), pp. 250-257, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.quaint.2010.04.026
Keywords: climate-change   coastline   italy   sea-level  

Abstract

Published and new sea level data are used to provide projections of sea level change in Italy for the year 2100 by adding new isostatic and tectonic component to the IPCC and Rahmstorf projections. Comparison of the observations from more than 130 sites (with different geomorphological and archaeological sea level markers) with the predicted sea level curves provides estimates of the vertical tectonic contribution to the relative sea level change. The results are based on the most recent ANU model for ...
