Make a Prediction


Sea level rise is one of the main effects associated with climate change. Some climatologists have suggested that it is possible for sea level to change dramatically over a relatively small period of time, on the order of decades.

As of January 2022, global sea levels have been increasing at 3.3 mm per year, a pace that has accelerated since the 90s. Church, et al. 2013 modeled sea level rise for scenarios RCP 2.6, RCP 3.4, and RCP 4.5 and gave forecasts of 440mm, 530mm, and 740mm (respectively) by 2100. A 2017 NOAA report surveyed several projections of RCP 8.0, which is considered as a worst-case scenario, and found projections for sea level rise by 2100 as high as 2700mm.
