Relative sea-level projections in Canada and the adjacent mainland United States / [by] T.S. James ... [et al.]. : M183-2/7737E-PDF

Relative sea-level projections are provided across Canada and the adjacent U.S. through the 21st century. The projections are based on the Representative Concentration Pathway (RCP) scenarios of the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Global Positioning System (GPS) measurements of vertical land motion are incorporated into the relative sea-level projections. On the east coast, relative sea-level projections are similar to or larger than the global mean projections across much of the area, while on the west coast, most relative sea-level projections are smaller than the global means. The largest variation in projected relative sea-level rise occurs in the Arctic. Here, projected relative sea-level at 2100 varies from around 1 m of sea-level fall where land is rising quickly on Hudson Bay, while it reaches about 70 cm of sea-level rise on the Beaufort coast where the land is subsiding.
