Record #154019:

Substantial contribution to sea level rise during the last interglacial from the Greenland ice sheet / Kurt M. Cuffey, Shawn J. Marshall.

Title: Substantial contribution to sea level rise during the last interglacial from the Greenland ice sheet / Kurt M. Cuffey, Shawn J. Marshall.
Author(s): Cuffey, Kurt M.
Marshall, Shawn J.
Date: 2000.
In: Nature. (2000.), Vol. 404(6778) (2000)
Abstract: During Eemian interglacial, global sea level was at least 3 m higher than now. Today, complete melting of West Antarctic or Greenland ice sheets would probably raise level 6-7 m. Results from Greenland ice cores and modelling suggest that Greenland sheet was much smaller and steeper during Eemian, plausibly contributing c. 5 m to level. So high level then probably included large Greenland contribution, and need not be seen to point to big change in West Antarctic sheet.
