Local relative sea-level change anomaly with respect to globally averaged change estimates

Figure3-10_resize

Figure 3-10 Areas of highest anticipated local relative sea-level rise are in red, areas of lowest (negative) local relative sea-level rise are in blue. Figure shows local relative sea-level change anomaly with respect to globally averaged change estimates (1.02 m:3.35 feet) between 1980–1999 and 2090–2099 based on an ensemble of coupled climate model simulations for the IPCC A1B emission scenario (IPCC, 2007) with an adapted ice-sheet contribution of 0.22 m (0.72 feet) for Greenland and 0.41 m (1.35) from Antarctica.
