Sea Level Rise

Understanding the contributions to present sea-level rise, and their causes, is crucial to projecting what might happen in the future.

The purpose of this document is:

1. To update the Australian Government and the community on the latest developments in sea-level rise research, particularly those since 2008 when the ACE CRC produced Briefing: a post-IPCC AR4 update on sea-level rise;

2. To explain the components of sea-level rise and summarise our knowledge of how these could influence sea-level rise in the future; and

3. To inform policymakers, planners and infrastructure developers on the tools available to assist with adaptation to future sea-level rise.


Authorised by the CEO of the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre October 2019.

The ACE CRC was established and supported under the Australian Government’s Cooperative Research Centres Program.
