      Sea levels are rising as the oceans warm, ice melts and water expands. Sea levels have already risen about a foot and could rise several more feet by the end of the century. Earth’s warming climate is causing sea levels to rise in two different ways. First, warmer air temperatures are causing glaciers and land ice to melt.   The reason, Solomon says, is due to “ocean inertia”: As the world warms due to greenhouse gases — carbon dioxide included — waters heat up and expand, causing sea levels to rise. Removing the extra ocean heat caused by even short-lived gases, and consequently lowering sea levels, is an extremely slow process.

Mean sea level rise and the Greenhouse effect All indicators point to a rise in the mean level of the world's oceans. Rising sea level is an important consequence of global warming observed in recent decades, connected with the anthropogenic activity and the concentrations of greenhouse gases increasing in the atmosphere.

    Both of these changes would have major impacts on the operation of coastal drainage systems. However, because sea level rise and climate change resulting from the greenhouse effect are still uncertain, most planners and engineers are ignoring the potential implications. Predicted sea level rise by the end of this century, showing the range and mid-point of projections for a low greenhouse gas emissions scenario, and a high greenhouse gas emissions scenario.

The global warming from the greenhouse effect could raise sea level one meter about one meter in the next century and several meters in the next few hundred years by expanding ocean water, melting mountain glaciers, and causing ice sheets to melt or slide into the oceans. Such a rise would inundateCited by: The greenhouse effect would not necessarily raise sea level by the same amount everywhere.

Removal of water from the world's ice sheets would move the earth's center of gravity away.

Ruckelshaus Van Nostrand Reinhold New York Green House Effect and Sea Level. The sea level is going to rise by the rapid melt-down of glaciers and the already observable ice decline in polar regions. Nonetheless a full melt-down of glaciers would also cause a massive encroachment in the water balance that would lead to droughts in summer due to missing melt-off water and to heavy deluges (floods) because the precipitation no longer falls as snow.

Fortunately, many of the adverse consequences can be avoided more» by taking timely measures in anticipation of sea level rise.

But something else also causes sea level to rise. Water expands as it gets warmer. As the temperature of the ocean goes up, the ocean actually expands, even without adding any water from the melting ice.

Chapter 1 provides an overview of the greenhouse effect, projections of future sea level rise, the basis for expecting significant impacts on coastal wetlands, and possible responses.

Previous studies suggest that the expected global warming from the greenhouse effect could raise sea level 50 to centimeters (2 to 7 feet) in the next century or two.

Secular sea level trends extracted from tide gauge records of appropriately long duration demonstrate that global sea level may be rising at a rate in excess of 1 millimeter per year.

However, because global coverage of the oceans by the tide gauge network is highly nonuniform and the tide gauge data reveal considerable spatial variability, there has been a well-founded reluctance to Cited by: Greenhouse Effect, Sea Level and Drought.
