Regional sea level projection - annual time series, 2006-2090 - 0.5 degree resolution


Sea level projections based on the CMIP5 climate models and the IPCC AR5 under 4 RCP scenarios for the western tropical Pacific. The data are presented in annual time steps between 2006 and 2090. Attributes recorded: - Latitude & Longitude (0.5 degree resolution); - Time; - Sea level change projection - lower bound (5%), metres; - Sea lev... more

Various global average sea-level projections are combined with regional distributions (associated with ocean density and circulation changes and land ice change, GIA) to produce this regional sea level project data set.


PCMDI for CMIP5, IPCC AR5 for global mean sea level projections, Mitrovica et al. for land ice fingerprints, and Kendall et al. for the GIA distribution. This data collection is a product is funded and supported by the Australian Government through the Pacific Australian Climate Change Science and Adaptation Planning Programme (PACCSAP). PACCSAP was funded by Department of Foreign Affair & Trade, managed by the Department of the Environment and the science was delivered by the partnership between CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology.

About this Project

CLSD 4.1 PACCSAP-SLR Projections


The project analysed sea level observations and global climate model results (CMIP5) for both the 20th century and for projections for the 21st century.

Sea-level rise


Sea levels rising in the Pacific will have significant impacts on coastal industries and ecosystems. Using global climate models, Pacific-Australia Climate Change Science Adaptation Planning (PACCSAP) scientists are developing sea-level rise projections over the next century. Sea-level rise projections in the Pacific require careful consideration o... more
