  1. I find it strange since the projected sea level rise by 2050 is 10 inches, which suggests a linear trend, but if it is nonlinear it should be much higher. Is there a mistake here? Santosh Gupta
  2. According to the UN panel, sea level rise was supposed to be about 6 inches per decade, but it seems a linear trend was suggested. However, if you look at past ice ages sea level rise could have been about 100 m, ofcourse it might be less if only a part of the artic and antartic zones are thawed, but could this be nonlinear? In other words, could sea level rise due to global warming be linear for the first degree or two and then accelerate?
  3. I'm not sure of the solution, but reforestation is considered a major approach to carbon capture, so it's definitely important.
  4. The equations you have on the whiteboard represent large scale changes in climate and climate dynamics. If you want equations more relevant to local changes and meteorology you might like to consider the Navier-Stokes equation based on Newton's Laws which describes the motion of a small fluid parcel in a fluid. A simple example of such an equation is the conservation of mass equation describing the balance between mass and the flow of mass, which you can easily look up (look for conservation of mass equation for navier-stokes equations).
