Potential sea-level rise from Antarctic ice-sheet instability constrained by observations

nature16147.pdf
Large parts of the Antarctic ice sheet lying on bedrock below sea level may be vulnerable to marine-ice-sheet instability (MISI)1, a self-sustaining retreat of the grounding line triggered by oceanic or atmospheric changes. There is growing…

The multi-millennial Antarctic commitment to future sea-level rise

nature15706.pdf
Despite computational and methodological uncertainties, and a wide range of potential greenhouse gas emissions, here millennial-scale simulations of the Antarctic Ice Sheet in a warming climate show that most of Antarctica’s fringing ice shelves…

The vulnerability of Indo-Pacific mangrove forests to sea-level rise

nature15538.pdf
Assessment of mangrove forest surface elevation changes across the Indo-Pacific coastal region finds that almost 70 per cent of the sites studied do not have enough sediment availability to offset predicted sea-level rise; modelling indicates that…
