Isostasy and Mean Sea Level

5 Mar 2012

An interesting guest post at Anthony's site - see ... a look at all the things that might affect global sea level - and whether or not it has been rising in the recent warming period. For the moment, sea levels appear to have settled down, possibly due to cooler sea surface temperatures as a result of two years of La Nina dominancy. However, there is more to it than simply thermal expansion of sea water. Lots more.
