Part of: Deltas of the World


During the past 150 years sea level may have risen globally by, at the most, 1.1 mm/year from about 1850 to 1930-1940. There is no straightforward relation between climate and sea level. It climate gets warmer, sea level need not at all to rise significantly. If sea level will rise in the near future, it is not likely to rise more than by about 10-20 cm in a century. The deltas of the world are excellent and sensitive recorders of sea level changes and related dynamic processes.
