Washington Post story about impact of warming on Greenland never mentions sea level rise

David F – from what I’ve read Greenland’s rebound will play out over a very long timescale, and it has already started. A lot of the rebound of it will happen quickly, and then the remainder will continue to happen over a very long period of time. There was a very interesting article last year about the gravitational pulls of the large ice sheets on Greenland and Antarctica, and the way they will determine where sea level will either rise and fall as they disappear. From memory, Greenland will eventually realize a significant sea level drop, but between then and now I would think it could be exposed to periods of SLR. Washington DC, for instance, will see an outsized SLR: well above the global average. Some might say well deserved.
