Scientists try to see how high the oceans can go from warming

Feb 2, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Star Tribune

Experts worldwide are gathering measurements to try to use historical markers to solve a vexing scientific problem: What's the limit on how much the ocean is capable of rising if temperatures increase as much as expected in this century? Dr.

Oh noes!

Steve is going to go linear because there's research into how high the oceans can go from warming.

Raymo and her team share an emerging scientific consensus that the increase in this century will probably be on the order of 3 feet, perhaps as much as 6 feet. That would almost certainly require millions of people to leave coastal regions.
Well to get to Raymo's prediction sea levels need to go up at an average rate of 11.5 mm/yr starting right now, at least 8.5 mm/yr faster than they are today. So when is this great change in the rate of sea level rise going to occur? Will it be ushered in with trumpeting angels and giant thunder claps? You guys are claiming that you have a talking dog, but everything I look at says he only barks.

It's a very long term process and won't be obvious for a couple of decades.

So hardly any increase for 20 years or so and then it's going to start right? Then it's going to nee to rise 15 mm/yr instead of merely 11 or so. What's going to cause the acceleration then?

You guys never do the arithmetic.

They sure do scientific science fiction. See their numbers are a prediction, forecast, maybe, could be and want to be. Oh, almost forgot in their opinion.
