Research Highlight

Sea level is a crucial oceanic parameter which shows variability on different timescales including the long-term trends. The sea level rise over the Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal from the TOPEX/Poseidon altimeter observations depict that the rate over the Arabian Sea is about 0.5 mm/year to 3 mm/year and over the Bay of Bengal is 0.75 mm/year to 6 mm/year. The rise is of steric origin and are also driven by short-term climate variability. The AR5 projected sea level rise for all the scenarios with the highest emission scenario (RCP8.5) projecting sea-level rise in the range of 0.45–0.82 m for the late twenty-first century (average over 2081–2100) for the Indian Ocean.
