Chart of the day: The seas, they be a-risin’


From Climate.gov:

Independent estimates of the relative contribution of thermal expansion (orange line) and melting and other added water (blue line) to global sea level rise add up (purple line) very closely to the observed global sea level rise measured by tide guages (black line). Graph adapted from Figure 3.27 in the BAMS State of the Climate in 2014 report.
