Emulating Ocean Dynamic Sea Level by Two‐Layer Pattern Scaling

Yuan, J., & Kopp, R. E. (2021). Emulating ocean dynamic sea level by two‐layer pattern scalingJournal of Advances in Modeling Earth Systems13, e2020MS002323. https://doi.org/10.1029/2020MS002323

We develop an emulator for dynamic sea level changes that is, built upon a two‐layer energy balance model. The emulator facilitates the estimation of future local sea‐level changes.
