27 (1): Paleo Constraints on Sea-Level Rise

Eds: Barlow NLM, Milne GA, Shakun JD & Eggleston S

Past Global Changes Magazine, vol. 27(1), 1-44, 2019


Number of pages: 44

This issue of Past Global Changes Magazine, “Paleo Constraints on Sea-Level Rise”, highlights scientific advances made over the last decade of the PALSEA working group, as well as identifies new challenges for the sea-level, ice-sheet, and broader paleo communities. The included articles summarize our current understanding of sea-level and ice-sheet changes during past warm periods and the application of this knowledge to infer future sea-level hazard.
