2 Impacts of and Responses to Sea-Level Rise.

3 A First-Order Assessment of the Impact of Long-Term Trends in Extreme Sea Levels on Offshore Structures and Coastal Refineries.

4 Paleoenvironmental Records, Geophysical Modeling, and Reconstruction of Sea-Level Trends and Variability on Centennial and Longer Timescales.

5 Modern Sea-Level-Change Estimates.

6 Ocean Temperature and Salinity Contributions to Global and Regional Sea-Level Change.

7 Cryospheric Contributions to Sea-level Rise and Variability.

8 Terrestrial Water-Storage Contributions to Sea-Level Rise and Variability.

9 Geodetic Observations and Global Reference Frame Contributions to Understanding Sea-Level Rise and Variability.

10 Surface Mass Loading on a Dynamic Earth: Complexity and Contamination in the Geodetic Analysis of Global Sea-Level Trends.

11 Past and Future Changes in Extreme Sea Levels and Waves.

12 Observing Systems Needed to Address Sea-level Rise and Variability.
