Taking the Fingerprints of Global Sea Level Rise September 11, 2014
This lecture describes efforts to model geographic variability variability, and to use it to help constrain the sources of meltwater in an approach known as "sea level fingerprinting". The talk demonstrates the power of the fingerprinting approach and shows that previous estimates of the recent acceleration of sea level rise were too low. This conclusion underscores the imperative we face as a global society as we move inexorably into a progressively warming world.
