Sea Level Decline and Global Cooling

Russ Steele

According to geologists there is apple evidence that as glaciers and ice fields build up, sea levels drop. In the distant past these declining sea levels created land bridges between islands and in one case continents during the last ice age.  Humans and bears walk across the Bering Strait the relatively narrow and shallow strait between the Chukotka Peninsula in Russia and the Seward Peninsula in Alaska, when sea level were 400 feet lower than today.

A recently study published by the American Metrological Society reported that Greenland’s ice fields have increased by 12% since the little ice age, with an increase between1840-1996 making the trend 30% higher than that of 1600-2009, suggesting an accelerating accumulation rate. More HERE.

This would suggest that sea level rise should be slowing, as the ice field build up trapping the water in the ice. P. Gosselin recently posted this study at the NoTricksZone.

Meteorologist Klaus-Eckart Puls: Sea Level Rise Has Slowed 34% Over The Last Decade!

German veteran meteorologist Klaus-Eckart Puls here has done an analysis of sea level rise. Contrary to claims made by fringe alarmist physicists, we see that sea level rise has decelerated markedly since 2003.

It appears that those living on beaches around the world can relax bit, as the sea level rise that stated as the last ice age is coming to an end.  If we have another grand minimum, it may start a sea level decline creating more beach front for those live on the ocean.

    Russ,
    I would love to see the levels actually drop. This seems to be the centerpeice for global warming hype. I’ts the unequivocal “proof” behind the theory. I mean one would assume if sea levels are rising, it must be coming from melting ice. Just imagine the fingernail biting amongst the AGW crowd if sea levels leveled off and actually dropped. I actually beleive this is possible depending on the depth and length of the next few solar cycles. Anyway, it’s a fun muse.

  2. One typo. First sentence. Apple evidence. But that could work. An apple a day keeps the alarmists away.
