rising sea levels

RE: rising sea levels




Crunch, Blue, Dubs - I am sure you are well-intentioned followers and believers. But this has gone so far off local issues and politics so as to be transferred to Cafe' or private messages. I wish you all the best as you all circle around and agree on your beliefs, and NYC, Nantucket, wherever.

For those of us on the ground, actually observing and having the opportunity to disagree and have sweet tea instead of the Kool-aid, we shall carry on. Somehow. With impending doom of manmade global warming/climate disruption/land subsidence/rising sea levels, or whatever the believers bring next.

Meantime, enjoy your vacations.

Apologies, not meaning to offend, just discuss the change in relative sea level NOT the cause.

PS: Not on vaca - just a sometimes tri-villages bum smiley

RE: rising sea levels




Thanks for the link, obxmini. Interesting fact that in NC "six of the seven highest precipitation events since 1898 have occurred within the last 20 years".

Interesting also that the flooding is resulting in increasing amounts of organic matter in the coastal estuaries, which is then broken down into CO2 by aquatic microbes.

Variation on the same theme in the arctic tundra, I believe, wherein the tundra is melting and releasing huge amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere, i.e., the greenhouse gases that Carl Sagan may have described from his studies decades ago of Venus, our next closest planet to the sun, and which he was so concerned about here.

Per wiki, CO2 in the atmosphere increased from 280 ppm in 1750 to 406 ppm in 2017, Click to follow link... That's almost a 50% increase. With the tundra melting now and the floods now increasing, will the CO2 concentration in the atmosphere increase even faster?

May have something to do with the red tide in the Gulf.

Red Tide has been on/off in the GOM for many many years, at least in the areas with which I am familiar (Lee County barrier islands - the hot spot). So long as we continue to "build west" on the east coast and fertilize to create Augusta National stye yards; expand sugar cane production/fertilization, off flow Lake O and basically fill the "river" (aka everglades) with algae food it's going to continue. And, it's not going to change anytime soon.

That's what I am hearing, too, OceanBlue. Was supposed to be very dead there in the GOM this year, and maybe it was, but I haven't heard more about it. Barry may have stirred things up.

None of the things you listed cause Red Tide. It's been occurring in the GOM since the 1800's.

Yes, Red Tide has been an issue going way back. Please, with all due respect, re read the Wiki article (a very watered down explanation, but broadly accurate) and you'll read that some of the increased blooming is purportedly attributed to run off - there are many articles written on the subject.

From a "boots on the ground" perspective, I can tell you that severity (not frequency) of the tide's respiratory implications (especially w an onshore wind) have been much more pronounced in recent years. In the 60's it was rare, but more so with each passing decade.
