NASA reports New Study shows Global Sea Level Rise has Accelerated over past 25 years

 

NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD – The rate of global sea level rise has been accelerating in recent decades, rather than increasing steadily, according to a new study based on 25 years of NASA and European satellite data.

This acceleration, driven mainly by increased melting in Greenland and Antarctica, has the potential to double the total sea level rise projected by 2100 when compared to projections that assume a constant rate of sea level rise, according to lead author Steve Nerem. Nerem is a professor of Aerospace Engineering Sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder, a fellow at Colorado’s Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES), and a member of NASA’s Sea Level Change team.

Global sea level rise is accelerating incrementally over time rather than increasing at a steady rate, as previously thought, according to a new study based on 25 years of NASA and European satellite data. (NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center/Kathryn Mersmann)

Fort Campbell Public Affairs Office

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – Specialist Ruben Salinas is the 2017 Army Soldier-Musician of the Year.

A saxophone player in the 101st Airborne Division Band, Salinas was selected for the award by Col. Neal F. McIntyre, Chief of Army Music, from Soldiers in 29 active duty bands.

“It’s a great honor,” Salinas said. “It’s a little bit surreal. To be recognized at that level is really quite something.”

Each Army band is allowed to nominate one Soldier from its unit. Salinas was nominated based on the total Soldier concept, devotion to duty and his accomplishments during the past year, said 1st Sgt. Jeffrey J. Dudzienski, 101st Abn. Div. Band first sergeant.

Salinas is the second 101st Abn. Div. Band member to receive this award. The first was newly-promoted Sgt. James Liverman in 2010. Liverman was a principal trumpeter in the 101st’s Brass Quintet.

Specialist Ruben Salinas practices playing his saxophone at the 101st Airborne Division Band Hall on 34th Street April 24, 2017. Salinas was named the 2017 Army Soldier-Musician of the Year. He is the second 101st Band member to receive the honor. (Michele Vowell, Fort Campbell Public Affairs Office)
