Sea levels rose 15 times faster 14,600 years ago

According to a paper just published in Nature, global sea levels rose between 14 to 18 meters over a period of not more than 340 years during the last deglaciation from 14,650 to 14,310 years ago. This equates to ~0.47 m/yr or 47 mm/yr, an entirely natural change more than 15 times faster than the 3.1 mm/yr rate of global sea level rise  reported since 1993.
