New research confirms that human activity is causing sea levels to rise beyond natural fluctuation.

A Colorado University study is the first to take Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO), the natural rise and fall in sea levels over time, into consideration and study has found Pacific sea levels are rising consistently beyond this naturally occurring phenomenon.

“Our new study shows that once you estimate [PDO] and remove it, you’re still left with sea level rise in that region that is not a result of this natural variability and we have attributed that to anthropogenic or man-made causes,” the study’s lead author Ben Hamlington told Pacific Beat.

The research team performed sea level reconstructions going back to 1950, by matching patterns of satellite and tide gauge data, then stripped away the effects of the PDO to see its influence on current sea level increases in the Pacific.
