Media Coverage of Fasullo et al. 2016 Scientific Reports

Seas aren't just rising, scientists say — it's worse than that. They're speeding up.

Washington Post - ‎Aug 10, 2016‎
In a new study in the open-access journal Scientific Reports, however, Fasullo and two colleagues say they have now resolved this problem. It turns out, they say, that sea level rise was artificially masked in the satellite record by the fact that one ...

Rate of sea-level increase speeding up, scientists say

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette - ‎19 hours ago‎
Between 2010 and 2011, ocean levels fell drastically because of La Nina and Australia's unique surface characteristics. But without irregular events like Pinatubo, Mr. Fasullo said, the rate of sea-level increase is not only rising, threatening coastal ...

Is Philippine's Mount Pinatubo Eruption the Reason Behind Rapid Sea Level Rise?

Nature World News - ‎13 hours ago‎
Today, lead study author John Fasullo and his team of researchers claim that sea levels are escalating more than expected due to the long pause caused by the eruption. “We got a very biased view of sea level rise, based on the happenstance timing of ...

Climate change already accelerating sea level rise, study finds

Phys.Org - ‎Aug 10, 2016‎
"When we used climate model runs designed to remove the effect of the Pinatubo eruption, we saw the rate of sea level rise accelerating in our simulations," said NCAR scientist John Fasullo, who led the study. "Now that the impacts of Pinatubo have ...

A Volcanic Eruption Hid a Critical Climate Signal for Twenty Years

Gizmodo - ‎Aug 10, 2016‎
Now, we have our first firm evidence that the rate of sea level rise is already quickening. Analyzing numerous model simulations with and without natural factors that can affect global sea level, Fasullo and his colleagues were able to pick out the ...

How did one volcano confuse scientists, ocean research?

Christian Science Monitor - ‎9 hours ago‎
Months later, NASA and French space agency CNES launched the first satellite altimeter, TOPEX/Poseidon, to monitor sea level from orbit. Many studies on sea level trends are based on data from the satellite. But that original data was skewed, Dr ...

Boulder scientists unravel Pinatubo's effect on sea level measurements

Boulder Daily Camera - ‎Aug 10, 2016‎
"Part of the subtext here is that this is a very policy-relevant index of climate change," Fasullo said, referring to the rate of acceleration. "If you live on the coasts, understanding sea level is extremely policy relevant; the burning question of ...

Mt. Pinatubo Eruption Hid Rate of Sea Level Rise

Voice of America - ‎Aug 10, 2016‎
Those colder temperatures literally slowed the rate of sea level rise, skewing statistics from the get-go. One of the authors of the research John Fasullo from NCAR told VOA, "The main point of the paper is that the eruption changed the timing of sea ...

Climate change rise in sea levels swamped by volcanic rebound

The Australian - ‎Aug 10, 2016‎
The researchers say the increase in global average sea levels, which has averaged 3.3mm a year since 1993, will gain pace by an extra 0.12mm per year. Lead author John Fasullo said sea level rise would be among the most damaging impacts of climate ...

How a volcano hid the acceleration of sea level rise

Raw Story - ‎9 hours ago‎
An uptick in sea level rise caused by greenhouse gas pollution during the past two decades has been hiding behind a volcano. The eruption of Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines in 1991 sent tens of millions of tons of sulphur dioxide into the stratosphere.

The Climate Post: Volcanic Eruption Affects Sea Level Rise

Huffington Post - ‎4 hours ago‎
“What we've shown is that sea level acceleration is real, and it continues to be going on, it's ongoing, and we understand why you don't see it in the short satellite record,” said John Fasullo, who conducted the research along with scientists from the ...

Sea Level Rise May Be Accelerating

Popular Science - ‎Aug 10, 2016‎
... that an acceleration in sea level rise might be imminent. "When we used climate model runs designed to remove the effect of the Pinatubo eruption, we saw the rate of sea level rise accelerating in our simulations," lead author of the paper John ...

Volcanic eruption masked acceleration in sea level rise

National Science Foundation (press release) - ‎Aug 10, 2016‎
"When we used climate model runs designed to remove the effect of the Pinatubo eruption, we saw the rate of sea level rise accelerating in our simulations," said National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) scientist John Fasullo, who led the study.

Global Sea Level Rise Hidden by Volcano

Seeker - ‎Aug 10, 2016‎
"Pinatubo decreased the apparent starting point of sea level," said John Fasullo, a climate scientist with the National Center for Atmospheric Research and University of Colorado who led the new study. Warm waters expand, which is a major cause of sea ...

1991 volcanic eruption in the Philippines has masked the impact of global warming

Daily Mail - ‎Aug 10, 2016‎
The researchers say that the lower starting point distorts the calculation of sea level rise since 1993. Dr John Fasullo, who led the study, said: 'When we used climate model runs designed to remove the effect of the Pinatubo eruption, we saw the rate ...

Philippines volcano: Cataclysmic Pinatubo eruption masked sea level rise from global warming

International Business Times UK - ‎Aug 10, 2016‎
"When we used climate model runs designed to remove the effect of the Pinatubo eruption, we saw the rate of sea level rise accelerating in our simulations," says lead author John Fasullo. "Now that the impacts of Pinatubo have faded, this acceleration ...

Sea level rise quickening, new study finds

Anadolu Agency - ‎Aug 10, 2016‎
"When we used climate model runs designed to remove the effect of the Pinatubo eruption, we saw the rate of sea level rise accelerating in our simulations," NCAR scientist and study leader John Fasullo said in a statement. "Now that the impacts of ...

True Impact Of Climate Change On Rising Sea Levels Has Been Concealed For Decades

Huffington Post UK - ‎13 hours ago‎
However because these satellite records were introduced so shortly after the Pinatubo eruption, it meant a lower sea level starting point has effectively distorted the data of acceleration for the last couple of decades. Scientist John Fasullo wrote ...

Not only is the sea rising - it's doing so at an accelerating rate

iNews - ‎Aug 10, 2016‎
It's well known that global warming is pushing up sea levels – but alarming new research suggests that the ocean has begun rising at an accelerating rate. Rising temperatures increase the sea level by melting land ice, which makes its way into the ...
