    Sorry about that;

    But Mr Rosengren and Mr Miner found that the 2017 erosion was not caused by “extreme or unusual” conditions. “There was no single, large scale event that stood out,” Mr Rosengren told The Age. “There is something general and widespread in time at Mounts Bay.”

    The findings raise the prospect that rising seas due to climate change are now proving a real problem for vulnerable coastal locations.

    Mr Rosengren said rising sea levels contributed to the erosion at Mounts Bay.

    “You’re witnessing the effects of a complex of processes of which sea level is one,” he said.


    How fast are the oceans warming?

    Past and future ocean heat content changes

    Annual observational OHC changes are consistent with each other and consistent with the ensemble means of the CMIP5 models for historical simulations pre-2005 and projections from 2005–2017, giving confidence in future projections to 2100 (RCP2.6 and RCP8.5) (see the supplementary materials). The mean projected OHC changes and their 90% confidence intervals between 2081 and 2100 are shown in bars at the right. The inset depicts the detailed OHC changes after January 1990, using the monthly OHC changes updated to September 2018 [Cheng et al. (2)], along with the other annual observed values superposed.
