  • Sea level
  • Bog ; Coastal dynamics ; Coastal environment ; Foraminifera ; Global change ; Indicator ; Quaternary ; Sea level
  • This report examines recent developments in relation to present (and anticipated future) sea level, Quaternary sea-level fluctuations, the response of coastal landforms to sea-level change and the use of biological indicators of sea-level change.
  • Sea level
  • Bibliography ; Coastal environment ; Eustatism ; Global change ; Greenhouse effect ; Impact ; Quaternary ; Sea level ; Shoreline
  • This report will concentrate on aspects of Quaternary sea-level change, summaries of trends in sea-level over recent decades from tide gauges, and predictions of future sea-level change and the anticipated responses of the coast.
  • The sea level in the last interglacial
  • Sea level rise
  • Forecast ; Global change ; Greenhouse effect ; New Zealand ; Sea level
  • This paper concerns a few of many important aspects of the treatment given to sea-level rise postulated to attend global warming under the greenhouse warming group of hypotheses. Particular atteention is paid to the last 5 years of this debate.
  • Climatic change, ice sheets and sea level in Sea level ice and climatic change.
  • The response of coastal marshes to sea-level rise: survival or submergence?
  • Coastal environment ; Coastal marsh ; Geochemistry ; Organic materials ; Salinity ; Sea level ; Sedimentology ; Vegetation
  • The aim of this paper is to review the responses of various components of the marsh ecosystem to sea-level rise, emphasizing interactions between physical and biotic processes, and to demonstrate that consideration of either geomorphic or vegetative
  • processes alone is inadequate to predict the response of coastal marshes to sea-level rise.
  • The greenhouse effect, sea-level rise and coastal geomorphology
  • Future sea-level rise provides a major challenge to coastal geomorphologists working in many different areas. Regional responses to a variable projected rate of sea-level rise will undoubtedly be complex and have major policy implications. Coastal
  • geomorphologists can provide valuable information on the likely reaction of coastlines to sea-level change, as well as advising on suitable protection strategies.
  • Sea levels : resolution and uncertainty
  • Biostratigraphy ; Diatom ; Foraminifera ; Forecast ; Geochemistry ; Holocene ; Pollen ; Remote sensing ; Satellite ; Sea level
  • This report briefly reviews the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report (AR4) sea-level summary and projections for future change. It then considers the development of high-resolution records of relative sea-level (RSL) change which have the potential
  • Sea level
  • Coastal erosion ; Coastal management ; Environmental management ; Global change ; Impact ; Model ; Sea level
  • This report focuses on assessments of the impact of sea-level rise on contemporary geomorphic systems (sea-level projections, coastal system response) and some of the socioeconomic aspects of these impacts.
  • Possible effects of recent changes in sea level on the biota of a Caribbean reef flat and predicted effects of rising sea levels in Proceedings. Volume 3. Symposia and seminars.
  • Prediction of the changes in biota that would result on a semi-intertidal reef flat of Panama from a slight rise in sea level.
  • Holocene sea-level changes and coastal processes on the south coast of Ireland: corals and the problems of sea-level methodology in temperate waters in Proceedings. Volume 3. Symposia and seminars.
  • A discussion on indicators of coastline and sea-level changes in Ireland.
  • Geomorphological response of the East Frisian barrier islands to sea-level rise: an investigation of past and future evolution
  • Climatic warming ; Deglaciation ; Germany ; Global change ; Greenhouse effect ; Holocene ; Island ; Lagoon ; Model ; Nature conservation ; North Sea ; Quaternary ; Sea level
  • Post-glacial sea-level rise has resulted in shoreline erosion in many places. Sandy barrier islands migrate in a landward direction in order to compensate for the rise in sea-level. Several models for the possible response of the East Frisian
  • barrier islands and tidal flats to the Holocene sea-level rise are summarized.
  • Rapid sea level and climate change: evidence from continental and island margins
  • This review of the relationship between rapid climatic and sea level change has three purposes: (1) to review critically the four major sources of sea level data from which eustatic sea level trends are constructed (accurate dating, paleobathymetry
  • , stratigraphic resolution, paleoclimatic data)| (2) to assess the accuracy of key sea level positions during the past 250,000 years, particular by those local sea level records that do not match the generalized Barbados eustatic sea level model and which
  • are often attributed to dating errors or tectonic overprint| and (3) to discuss the relationship between sea level and climate.
  • Coral reefs and islands and predicted sea-level rise
  • This paper examines the likely response of coral reefs to future sea-level change over the time scale of 102 years, in the light of what is known of reef growth rates and reef response to sea-level change in the historical record, especially since
  • the late glaciation, and of the contemporary growth rates of reefs. Given the present imprecision of attempts to estimate future sea-level rise, the A. suggests broad response rates of reefs to various potential sea-level scenarios.
  • Sea level
  • Climatic warming ; Coastal dynamics ; Earthquake ; Eustatism ; Glacio eustatic change ; Global change ; Ice sheet ; Model ; Quaternary ; Sea level ; Tsunami
  • This report cannot attempt to review all that has been written on sea level in the last one or two years. Instead, it examines the extent to which it has been possible to reconstruct or explain the past pattern of truly global (eustatic) sea-level
  • change over the Late Quaternary, and the success or otherwise in trying to monitor ongoing global sea-level change.
  • Late Holocene sea-level change on Rota and Guam, Mariana Islands, and its constraint on geophysical predictions
  • C 14 dating ; Geophysics ; Holocene ; Micronesia ; Model ; Quaternary ; Reef ; Sea level ; Vertical movement
  • Holocene emergent reefs and notches are well distributed on Rota and Guam. Relative sea-level changes at these islands are reconstructed based on geomorphological observations and borings on present and emergent reefs, together with 54 radiocarbon
  • dates. Reconstructed late Holocene sea-level change in the Mariana Islands provides constraints on geophysical models of sea-level variations.
  • Detailed documentation of a Holocene sea level record in the Perth region, southern Western Australia
  • Holocene prograded coastal sequences at Becker/Rockingham, southern Western Australia, contain a detailed record of sea level over the last 6400 yr. Radiocarbon dating and use of a distinct stratigraphic indicator as a sea-level marker permit
  • reconstruction of sea level history and suggest that the sea was at least 2.5 m above present datum about 6400 yr B.P. before falling to its present level.
  • Salt-marsh foraminifera in Ho Bugt, western Denmark, and their use as sea-level indicators
  • Denmark ; Estuary ; Foraminifera ; Holocene ; Hydrobiology ; Index ; Jylland ; North Sea ; Salinity ; Salt marsh ; Sea level
  • This paper presents the data of 27 surface samples, collected from the Kjelst Enge salt marsh in Ho Bugt, Jutland, to investigate the potential use of salt-marsh foraminifera as sea-level indicators in Holocene intertidal deposits. The results
  • confirm the usefulness of salt-marsh foraminifera as sea-level indicators in North Sea salt marshes.
  • Sea level is not level : the case for a new approach to predicting UK sea-level rise
  • Climatic change ; Coastal environment ; Forecast ; Geophysics ; Global change ; Methodology ; Model ; Sea level ; United Kingdom
  • The AA. argue that the global (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) IPCC sea-level values should be replaced by a suite of regional values, to take into account known processes that cause regional changes in sea-surface topography
  • . A combined modelling/geological approach will produce more robust regional sea-level predictions for the UK.
