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

6 November 2020

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 ranging from a peak in carbon dioxide concentrations in the next decades to burning most of the available carbon reserves over the next 2 centuries. 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.
