Steric Sea Level Variations during 19571994 : Importance of Salinity

By: John I. Antonov

Excerpt: Spatially averaged (50 S?65 N) temperature and salinity changes in the 0?3000 m layer during the 1957?1994 period resulted in a sea level rise at a mean rate of about 0.55 mm per year. About 10% of this rate is due to a decrease of the volume mean salinity. The magnitude of total steric sea level (TSSL) changes and the ratio of thermosteric and halosteric anomalies to TSSL anomaly are nonuniform geographically. Salinity effects are critically important to the TS...
