The effect of melting land-based ice masses on sea-level around the Australian coastline

Fleming, Kevin; Tregoning, Paul; Kuhn, Michael; Purcell, Anthony; McQueen, Herbert


Changes in relative sea-level (RSL) are generally caused by variations in sea surface heights from steric effects (thermal expansion and salinity changes) and the mechanical response of the Earth to past and current redistributions of ice and water between land and oceans. This paper focuses on the latter, where we present scenario calculations of the spatial variability in present-day RSL change around the Australian coastline resulting from melting land-based ice masses. Three scenarios are...[Show more]
