Earth System Dynamics (ESD) is a not-for-profit international scientific journal dedicated to the publication and public discussion of studies that take an interdisciplinary perspective of the functioning of the whole Earth system and global change. The overall behaviour of the Earth system is strongly shaped by the interactions among its various component systems, such as the atmosphere, cryosphere, hydrosphere, oceans, pedosphere, lithosphere, and the inner Earth, but also by life and human activity. ESD solicits contributions that investigate these various interactions and the underlying mechanisms, ways how these can be conceptualized, modelled, and quantified, predictions of the overall system behaviour to global changes, and the impacts for its habitability, humanity, and future Earth system management by human decision making.

06 Nov 2020 Semi-equilibrated global sea-level change projections for the next 10 000 years

Scientists from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel made projections of global mean sea-level change during the next 10 000 years for a range in climate forcing scenarios. They find that global mean sea level will rise between 9 and 37 m, depending on the emission of greenhouse gases. In this study, they investigated the long-term consequence of climate change for sea-level rise.
