Sea Level Rise

Global mean sea level has been rising at an average rate of 1 to 2 mm/year over the past 100 years, which is significantly larger than the rate averaged over the last several thousand years. Projected increase from 1990-2100 is anywhere from 0.09-0.88 meters, depending on which greenhouse gas scenario is used and many physical uncertainties in contributions to sea-level rise from a variety of frozen and unfrozen water sources.

  1. Sea level rise has averaged 13 mm/year during the 10,000 years of the Holocene interglacial period. Sea level has risen at 3 mm/year since 1993, with no significant sea-level rise in the past three years. Accordingly, current changes in sea level are well within natural variability.
