AbstractRelative sea level in the BBDS region is projected to fall at nearly all locations, despite projected global sea level rise. Th e BBDS pattern is mainly due to crustal uplift in response to past and projected ice mass decreases. For the high-emissions scenario, the projected median relative sea-level change (at 2100, relative to 1986-2005) ranges over the region from a fall of nearly 90 cm to a rise of nearly 10 cm.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This is a section on observed and projected sea-level in the Baffin Bay/Davis Strait Region, based on a previously published GSC Open File. Even through global sea-level is projected to rise, sea level is generally projected to fall in the region because of large amounts of vertical crustal motion measured at some locations and owing to proximity to the Greenland ice sheet at other locations.
