  Beck: Sea Change (2002): Reviews
Sea Change not only signals a pinnacle in his career but may just be remembered, in an environment fueled by accelerating cycles of disposable culture, as one of this young decade's best records.
Sea Change is different (and, in a way, less interesting) than everything Beck has previously done, but he has a rare gift that he shares with precious few artists, Prince and Bob Dylan amongst them: no matter what he does, Beck will always be interesting.
Sea Change, while still a very good disc, is a disappointment in that it marks the first time Beck has ever retraced his steps.

From the standpoint of glaciology, the implications of the changing of relative sea level are global in scope.
Sea level represents ultimate base level, so the implications for eustatic adjustments in terms of rivers and coastal processes are global in scope.
Sea level is continuing to rise at the present time, and has risen 12 to 30 centimeters since the turn of the century due to a recession of glaciers worldwide.

 BBC - Rock & Alt Review - Beck, Sea Change
Sea Change is startling in its atmosphere and mood.
Sea Change reminds me of every kind of loss: my imagination runs wild in fields of passing, loved things left, deaths, aging, breakups, --everything I have to lack--but there it is in my sad imagination and it is beautiful and I thank Beck for affixing all this change to an artifact.
Sea Change is more akin to Mutations than his other albums, due to that sonorous, sepulchral quality, but it stands, as all of Beck's albums do, alone.

The rate of mean sea level rise or fall has been determined for 117 long term water level stations.

It details rising sea levels, an increase in storms and acidity and a rise in salt levels in surface sea water.
Experts said sea birds, such as guillemots and puffins, might gradually have to move northwards while the decline of the kittiwake, one of Scotland's most common seabirds, which has seen its numbers fall by half over the past 15 years, has been linked to increasing winter temperatures.

 Susan Haire: Sea Change
It expresses a sea change that is far greater than anything Susan had previously imagined which she intends to embrace in the large-scale installation paintings in the exhibition.

 Climate Change and Arctic Sea Ice
The Arctic's sea ice is home to a wide variety of wildlife, including polar bears, arctic foxes, seals, walruses, and whales, fish species such as Arctic cod and char, and sea birds such as guillemots, auks, and eiders.
The sea ice is also used as an important transportation route by caribou and muskox and a traditional hunting ground for the Inuit, that remarkable indigenous culture of the far north.
Many species of seal are ice-dependent, including the spotted seal, which in the Bering Sea breeds exclusively at the ice edge in spring; the harp seal, which lives at the ice edge all year; the ringed seal, which give birth to and nurse their pups on sea ice; the ribbon seal and the bearded seal.

 Sea Level Change
I’ve altered the title of my talk from Sea-Level Rise to Sea Level Change, partly because the IPCC changed from referring to the phenomenon as sea-level rise in its 1990 report to sea-level change in its 1995 report.
The main reason, however, is that we are concerned here both in terms of rise in the recent past, but over the long term we have to think about the fact that sea level has both risen and fallen.
Across the bottom of the graph is a legend showing the height of the sea level in centimeters, around an average of zero.

 Sea level rise due to global warming - Climate Change   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
It is likely that much of the rise in sea level has been related to the concurrent rise in global temperature over the last 100 years.
The rate of observed sea level rise suggests that there has been a net positive contribution from the huge ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica, but observations of the ice sheets do not yet allow meaningful quantitative estimates of their separate contributions.
The ice sheets remain a major source of uncertainty in accounting for past changes in sea level because of insufficient data about these ice sheets over the last 100 years.

The impact of a war at sea in the North Pacific is primarily a matter of ‘stirring’.
That the well-documented war at sea in the Pacific did not leave any impact on the temperature and salinity structure at innumerable ‘places’, and at all sea levels, seems to be almost impossible to believe.
Global war at sea from 1942 to 1945 took place primarily in sub polar waters, south of 60°, with the consequence that a general cooling is the most likely result.

 sea change   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
This rich language has so captivated the ears of generations of writers that they feel compelled to describe as “sea changes” not only alterations that are “rich and strange,” but, less appropriately, those that are simply large or sudden.
Always popular, this cliché has recently become so pervasive as to make “sea” an almost inextricable companion to “change,” whatever its meaning.
