Projected change in relative sea level

Figure Created 25 Jul 2014 Published 25 Jul 2014 Last modified 11 Nov 2014, 10:57 AM
The map shows the projected change in relative sea level in 2081-2100 compared to 1986-2005 for the medium-low emission scenario RCP4.5 based on an ensemble of CMIP5 climate models. Projections consider land movement due to glacial isostatic adjustment but not land subsidence due to human activities. No projections are available for the Black Sea.
