This paper examines various aspects of global warming, with an emphasis on sea level rise. The paper describes the various theories explaining this phenomena. Various scholars and their work on this topic is cited as well. The article also includes special reference to models of future Arctic sea ice levels, which scientists are using to attempt to predict future scenarios for global warming and the melting of ice in the Polar Regions.
From the Paper:"Global warming is thought to be linked to sea level rise, due to various processes. For example, if glaciers melt, the sea level may rise. Alternatively, if ice shelves melt, glacier on land masses lose protection, and may surge towards the sea, causing rises in sea level as the terrestrial ice enters the sea. In fact, Thomas et al. suggest that as much as half of the rise in sea levels is caused by this last-mentioned factor. This essay examines the scientific investigation of these phenomena, with special reference to models of future Arctic sea ice..."
