sea-level rise

Some additional data:
*As of May,2017,the IPCC was predicting from less than one-foot,to 3.2-feet sea-level rise by 2100,with 'caveats.'(it could be higher)
*In 1978,Hans Weertman had isolated a mechanism for 'marine ice-sheet instability' which would lead to 'catastrophic sea-level rise' via deglaciation of the Thwaites Glacier,West Antarctica,predicting up to 16-feet of rapid sea-level rise in a matter of decades (which is happening now,according to Eric Rignot of NASA,and Ian Joughin of The University of Washington).
