Its original composition, drawn from the solar nebula from which the Sun and the planets formed, will have included many more light elements, especially hydrogen and helium, than are found today, and a complicated evolutionary process, still not fully understood, was involved in the progression from one to the other.

In deriving the trend, the extent of sea ice was defined as the area within which the concentration of sea ice is greater than 15%. 4 Sea–level trends The longest record of direct measurements of sea level comes from tide gauges. The IPCC has estimated that the rate of global mean sea–level rise during the twentieth century was in the range 10–20 cm, and that this rise was greater than that during the nineteenth century. However, no significant acceleration in the rate of rise was detected during the course of the twentieth century.
