Abstract(unpublished)
Sea-level projections are estimated in Arctic regions by combining data on global sea level changing due to a warming climate, postglacial rebound ('vertical land motion'), and sea-level fingerprinting - the contribution to global sea-level rise from each major ice-cap in the world. This indicator also presents evidence of the effects of sea-level rise on the Mackenzie Delta and on other coastal areas along the Beaufort Sea in the NWT.
