Radiocarbon dating for dummies
When I read that, I (like everyone else) assumed that corrections to the satellite sea level data since 1993 have now led to a revised trend toward faster (not slower) sea level rise. (For those concerned about Miami going underwater, these numbers equate to a little more than one inch every 10 years).
During the satellite era (since 1993), the trend in sea level rise was revised downward, by almost 10%, from 3.28 mm/year to about 3.0 mm/year.
The most recent study then reads too much into the wiggles in the new data, and even implies the acceleration will continue with the statement, “The suggested acceleration…
Physics intersects with many interdisciplinary areas of research, such as biophysics and quantum chemistry, and the boundaries of physics are not rigidly defined.
For example, ice loss from Greenland (which was large in 2011-12) has recently reversed itself with huge gains made in the last year.
These events are governed by natural variations in weather patterns, which have always occurred.
The most notable work was The Book of Optics (also known as Kitāb al-Manāẓir), written by Ibn al-Haytham, in which he was not only the first to disprove the ancient Greek idea about vision, but also came up with a new theory.
In the book, he was also the first to study the phenomenon of the camera obscura (his thousand-year-old version of the pinhole camera) and delved further into the way the eye itself works.
