How Earth Would Look If All The Ice Melted
 
02:45
We learned last year that many of the effects of climate change are irreversible. Sea levels have been rising at a greater rate year after year, and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change estimates they could rise by another meter or more by the end of this century. As National Geographic showed us in 2013, sea levels would rise by 216 feet if all the land ice on the planet were to melt. This would dramatically reshape the continents and drown many of the world's major cities.

Sea-level rise
 
05:16
Although it may not be immediately obvious when we visit the beach, sea-level rise is affecting coastlines all over the world. For low-lying countries such as the Netherlands, sea-level rise and tidal surges are a constant threat. Our oceans are rising as a consequence of climate change. As the temperature of seawater increases it expands and the ice melting from ice sheets and glaciers adds more water to the global ocean. We know this because satellites high above our heads measure the temperature of the sea surface and of our changing ice. While the global averaged trend is towards rising levels, there are many regional differences so that in some places it is rising and in other places it is falling. Satellites carrying altimeter instruments systematically measure the height of the sea surface so that sea-level rise can be closely monitored. Altimetry measurements over the last 25 years show that on average sea-level is rising about 3 mm a year and this rise is accelerating. ★ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/ESAsubscribe Check out our full video catalog: http://bit.ly/SpaceInVideos Follow ESA on Twitter: http://bit.ly/ESAonTwitter On Facebook: http://bit.ly/ESAonFacebook On Instagram: http://bit.ly/ESAonInstagram On Flickr: http://bit.ly/ESAonFlickr ESA is Europe's gateway to space.

If you want to know what the changing climate is doing to the earth, ask someone who's been there. Jason Briner has been above the Arctic Circle more than 35 times. He takes the big topic of global warming and shows you what it's doing to a very important place in this talk. Jason P. Briner is an Associate Professor of Geology at the University at Buffalo. Briner’s research expertise lies in glaciers and climate, specifically in Arctic regions. His passion for Arctic environs obviously explains why, in 2005, Briner moved to Buffalo, NY. Briner has been above the Arctic Circle more than 35 times for his research, in the remote corners of Alaska, Arctic Canada, Greenland and Norway.

Calcutta, Shanghai, London - low lying cities will get into trouble if sea levels continue to rise. Ice masses at the poles melting due to global warming are a major reason. But not all ice on the planet is the same. Global Ideas Climate Expert Anders Levermann (http://www.pik-potsdam.de/~anders/) explains which of the ice masses are relevant and how much sea levels would rise if all ice at or near the poles melted.

Sea level rise is so much more than melting ice

While researching climate change, we heard something confusing: the sea level in New York City is rising about one and a half times faster than the global average. We couldn’t figure out what that meant. Isn’t the sea level...flat? So we called up an expert and went down the rabbit hole. And, we did our best to visualize her truly bizarre answers with animations, dioramas, and a lot of melting ice.

Melting of Glaciers and Ice Sheets Sea level rise
 
09:45
Melting of Glaciers and Ice Sheets One of the most pronounced effects of climate change has been melting of masses of ice around the world. Glaciers and ice sheets are large, slow-moving assemblages of ice that cover about 10% of the world's land area and exist on every continent except Australia. They are the world's largest reservoir of fresh water, holding approximately 75% (1). Over the past century, most of the world's mountain glaciers and the ice sheets in both Greenland and Antarctica have lost mass. Retreat of this ice occurs when the mass balance (the difference between accumulation of ice in the winter versus ablation or melting in the summer) is negative such that more ice melts each year than is replaced (2). By affecting the temperature and precipitation of a particular area, both of which are key factors in the ability of a glacier to replenish its volume of ice, climate change affects the mass balance of glaciers and ice sheets. When the temperature exceeds a particular level or warm temperatures last for a long enough period, and/or there is insufficient precipitation, glaciers and ice sheets will lose mass. One of the best-documented examples of glacial retreat has been on Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa. It is the tallest peak on the continent, and so, despite being located in the tropics, it is high enough so that glacial ice has been present for at least many centuries. However, over the past century, the volume of Mount Kilimanjaro's glacial ice has decreased by about 80% (3). If this rate of loss continues, its glaciers will likely disappear within the next decade (4). Similar glacial meltbacks are occurring in Alaska, the Himalayas, and the Andes. Conclusion As CO2 emissions and climate change continue, risks to the health of the ocean will become a more prominent concern. With accelerated melting back of glaciers and ice sheets and the subsequent rise in sea level, with further decreases in oceanic pH, and with deceleration of the thermohaline circulation, there are many ways in which the delicate balance of ocean dynamics and ecosystems are being put at risk. These factors, combined with the uncertainty in predicting exactly how these impacts will interact, are causing changes in the ocean: an increasingly problematic issue for future generations

Climate change: California sea levels may rise higher than other places around the world - TomoNews
 
06:44
SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA — Researchers from the California Ocean Protection Council authority is warning that melting ice shelves in Antarctica could cause sea levels to rise, with the most dramatic increase expected in California. According to a report by the council’s Science Advisory Team, for every foot of global sea-level rise caused by the melting West Antarctic, sea levels will rise approximately 1.25 feet in the California coast. Researchers theorize that due to Earth’s rotation and gravitational pull, melting ice in Antarctica — particularly in the western portion — is pulled toward the California coast. This makes rising sea levels more dramatic in the region. In 2100, sea levels could rise as high as 6.9 feet in San Francisco and 7.1 feet in La Jolla. The council plans to hold a series of workshops and propose measures to address the danger of rising sea levels. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Crying dog breaks the internet’s heart — but this sad dog story has a happy ending" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4prKTN9bYQc -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

"Sea-Level Rise: Inconvenient, or Unmanageable?" Richard B. Alley
 
01:01:32
The warming climate is causing sea level to rise at an accelerating rate, and this is expected to continue, depending on human decisions about our energy system. Economic analyses generally show that efficient response to this challenge will be more favorable than ignoring the science and continuing with business as usual. Those analyses often assume that we will respond efficiently, and that the rise will be slow, small and expected. Recent events raise major questions about our efficiency, however, and scientific advances suggest that rapid warming could cause larger and faster rise than previously expected, with much higher costs. If so, then there is greater value in slowing warming and in managing coasts for resilience, and in advancing science rapidly to reduce the large uncertainties.

[ Scientists say the rate of sea level rise has nearly tripled since 1990] What was a 2.2 millimeter per year rise in 1993 was a 3.3 millimeter rise in 2014, based on estimates of the mass changes of a number of key components of sea level rise, such as the melting of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets, the study in Nature Climate Change found. That’s the difference between 0.86 and 1.29 inches per decade – and the researchers suggest further sea level acceleration could be in store. [ 11 animated maps showing how sea level rise could change the shapes of Maine towns] The chief cause of the acceleration was the melting of the Greenland ice sheet, which went from contributing less than 5 percent of all sea level rise in 1993 to contributing more than 25 percent in 2014, the study found. The loss of ice in Antarctica and smaller glaciers over the same time period also contributed to quicker sea level rise. The increase in the rate of sea level rise “highlights the importance and urgency of mitigating climate change and formulating coastal adaptation plans to mitigate the impacts of ongoing sea level rise,” write Xianyao Chen of the Ocean University of China and Qingdao National Laboratory of Marine Science and Technology, and colleagues. Chen’s co-authors hailed from institutions in China, Australia and the United States. “We understand why the sea level is accelerating and we’re understanding what the components are contributing,” Christopher Harig, one of the study’s authors and a researcher at the University of Arizona, said. Earlier this year, a different group of researchers found sea level rise was only about 1.1 millimeters per year before 1990, whereas in the period between 1993 through 2012 it was 3.1 millimeters per year. NASA, at present, puts the rate of sea level rise at 3.4 millimeters per year. But while the individual estimates differ, the broader picture is that researchers generally agree that the rate of sea level rise is increasing – and that this will have major consequences for coastal regions, which will have less time to adapt if sea level rise acceleration continues. “I think it’s gotten to the point where the observation is pretty robust,” Harig said. In the latest paper, researchers re-examined the recent satellite record to derive a clearer picture of sea level rise acceleration and considered each of the individual components of sea level rise, which make up the so-called sea level “budget.” They then found that the different parts of the budget matched up well with measurements of sea level change taken by satellite altimeters over the past two decades. “We’ve known the bottom line total sea level change over the last couple decades, and we’ve known the individual components on a year-by-year basis,” Bob Kopp, a Rutgers University sea level expert who was not involved in the study but is familiar with the work, said. “We’ve known the two match up pretty well. The authors show that, when you look a bit more sharply at the year-to-year total, it’s quite close to the total of the individual components. The sums work, not just on average but in each year. This increases confidence in the overall result.” The key components of sea level rise in this equation include thermal expansion of ocean water as it heats up – previously the dominant component but, as the study notes, not any more – and the melting of Greenland, Antarctica and smaller glaciers distributed across the globe. Finally, there is terrestrial water storage or loss if, due to rainfall or other factors, the continents end up storing more water on their surfaces, or alternatively, lose it to the ocean. The new study finds that losses of ice, and from Greenland in particular, are now becoming a bigger contributor to sea level rise than thermal expansion. And it notes rather pointedly that this contrasts with what the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the top authority on climate science, predicted would unfold across the course of the century in 2013. The more Greenland and Antarctica contribute to sea level rise, the higher it can go, since these are the two largest sources of land-based ice on the planet. For coastal communities, Harig said, the significance of the paper is that there’s no way to avoid the reality that sea level rise acceleration, which was already expected to occur based on scientific projections, is now here.

Sea level rise change predictions

New research suggests that some of the early data of sea level rise as a result of climate change may be skewed. The 1991 eruption of Mt. Pinatubo may have led to biased results, but researchers still believe sea levels could rise 20 feet by 2100.

Map Shows World Following 260-Foot Sea Level Rise
 
01:12
Designer Martin Varjic has drawn a map that shows what the world will look like if all of the polar ice melts and the sea level swells 260 feet. Environmentalists often talk about the dire effects of melting polar caps and rising sea levels, but the projected consequences can at times seem a bit abstract. As a means of making the situation more concrete, graphic designer Martin Vargic has drawn a vision of the future using the long-established techniques of cartography. His map shows what the world will look like if all of the polar ice melts and the sea level swells 260 feet. Instantly noticeable is that the continents shrink quite a bit. Closer examination shows that along with the disappearance current coastlines, major urban areas will end up under water as well. London, New Orleans, Berlin and Amsterdam will be no more. Parts of Brazil will also be lost, along with chunks of Miami, and Washington D.C. Said Vargic his rendering is an attempt to bring "traditional cartography to a contemporary setting, while reminding us about the dangers of global warming and subsequent climate change." How likely is it that his vision will come to pass? According to National Geographic, if everything continues as it is today, very. In time, modern conditions could cause the average temperature on the planet to increase from 58 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

UK Climate Change Risk Assessment 2017 - Urgent priorities for the UK
 
02:31
This animation accompanies the UK Climate Change Risk Assessment 2017 Evidence Report. This report has been prepared for the UK Government by the Adaptation Sub-Committee of the Committee on Climate Change. www.theccc.org.uk/uk-climate-change-risk-assessment-2017 Script Climate change is a global problem. The world is already around a degree warmer than it was, due to extra greenhouse gases in the atmosphere from human activity. Scientists have warned for some time that a temperature rise of two degrees or more risks severe and potentially irreversible changes to our planet. 2016 is set to be the warmest year ever recorded. If so, it will be the third record warmest year in a row. Last year’s historic Paris Agreement was an important step towards tackling this. But the effects of climate change are already being felt in the UK. Average temperatures are increasing and there is a trend towards milder winters and hotter summers. We can also expect more frequent floods, like those we’ve seen in recent years. And there are plenty of other challenges on the horizon. Which is why the Committee on Climate Change has carried out a comprehensive, scientific assessment of the risks and opportunities for the UK. The climate change risk assessment is the result of more than three years of work, involving hundreds of leading scientists, and experts from both the public and private sectors. It shows that the greatest threats to the UK come from periods of too much or too little water, increasing average and extreme seasonal temperatures, and rising sea levels. Action is needed to tackle six key risks: The increasing chance of more severe and widespread flooding. Risks to public health from higher temperatures, including in overheating homes. A risk of shortages in public water supplies, and scarce water for farming. A threat to nature including loss of native species. Food price spikes and potential disruption to UK and global food production. And risks from new and emerging pests and diseases affecting people, animals and plants. The longer action is delayed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and adapt to the changes, the higher the costs and risks will be. Climate change is happening now. This new UK risk assessment identifies where more effort is necessary, and urgent, to address these risks. It’s time to act.
