Arctic sea ice / Re: 2016 sea ice area and extent data

There is no ice on the Great Lakes as of last weekend, and it is well above freezing.

"those drops are caused by the first of the month effect."
How can there be any blue on the Great Lakes - that is, ice growth between May 31 and June 1 if a mask now prevents false ice showing up there.  Just to make sure - there is no ice on the Great Lakes now, right?  (I know there was some ice on Lake Superior until June 5 or 6, 2014.)

The rest / Re: Effect of sea level rise on river heights

The discharge elevation does impact the upstream elevations of a river.  In order to determine the magnitude of the impacts upstream from the discharge (mouth) of the river, the would need to be modeled, (using HEC-RAS or similar software).  The length upstream impacts depend on the river slope and geometry, but in general, the impacts are all contained within the first few hundred feet of the discharge . In your case, the impacts at the mouth would be 3 cm, then further from the discharge point the impact would be reduced to zero.
