if the sea level rises, does the atmosphere also rise/expand outwards?

I would not of thought it would affect the temperature The answer is 'no' ..... because the Atmosphere is not very flexible, and it is not direct

Answers:

The answer is 'no' .....

because the Atmosphere is not very flexible, and it is not directly reflexive to sea level changes

If the sea level rises ... the atmosphere will not also rise/expand outwards.

The reason why if sea levels rise the atmosphere will not also rise/expand outwards is b/c the earth's atmosphere has a thickness of more than ~75 miles.

A sea level rise of even hundreds ... let alone a handful ... of feet would be imperceptible over a distance of ~396,000 feet.
.

trivially. You change the zero point location, and this affects the gradient very slightly. The edge of the atmosphere is not sharp like the interface between water and air. Also, air has a highly variable volume-density range of conditions that are stable so the change in zero point is attenuated as one moves away from the location of change (complex interplay of density (compressibility) and gravitational attraction).

Don't think so because the water comes from melting of polar ice, and therefore there is no net increase in the volume occupied by water + land + glaciers. The vacuum created by the disappearing glaciers will be filled by air that is pushed out from the surface of the ocean. Without an increase in the solid and liquid, the air would not be pushed outward. If anything, since ice occupies a larger volume of space than melted water because ice crystals occupy more space than the same amount of melted water, there should be a slight decrease in volume so the atmosphere actually has more space to occupy than when the water is frozen.

Th hight of the atmosphere varies it's not the smae day to to day because low and high pressure weather sytems, the solar wind cand solar flares. Yes, the amosphere would expan out wards a little, but the seal level rise ill be pretty small on year by year bais that it will be almost insignificant compared with variation in hight of the atmosphere.

"...The Earth's atmosphere has four primary layers: the troposphere, stratosphere, mesosphere, and thermosphere. These layers protect our planet by absorbing harmful radiation.

Thermosphere 53–375 Miles - In the thermosphere, molecules of oxygen and nitrogen are bombarded by radiation and energetic particles from the Sun, causing the molecules to split into their component atoms and creating heat. The thermosphere increases in temperature with altitude because the atomic oxygen and nitrogen cannot radiate the heat from this absorption.

Mesosphere 31–53 Miles - Studying the mesosphere is essential to understanding long-term changes in the Earth's atmosphere and how these changes affect climate. Since the mesosphere is responsive to small changes in atmospheric chemistry and composition, it could provide clues for scientists, such as how added greenhouse gases may contribute to a change in temperature or water composition in the atmosphere.

Stratosphere 10–31 Miles - The ozone layer lies within the stratosphere and absorbs ultraviolet radiation from the Sun.

Troposphere 0–10 Miles - The troposphere is the layer of the Earth's atmosphere where all human activity takes place.

Ionosphere - The ionosphere is a layer of plasma formed by the ionization of atomic oxygen and nitrogen by highly energetic ultraviolet and x-ray solar radiation. The Ionosphere extends from the middle of the mesosphere up to the magnetosphere. This layer cycles daily as the daytime exposure to solar radiation causes the ionization of the atoms that can extend down as far as the mesosphere. However, these upper atmospheric layers are still mostly neutral, with only one in a million particles becoming charged daily. At night, the ionosphere mostly collapses as the Sun's radiation ceases to interact with the atoms in the thermosphere. There are still small amounts of charged atoms caused by cosmic radiation.

Communication - A unique property of the ionosphere is that it can refract shortwave radio waves, enabling communication over great distances by "bouncing" signals off this ionized atmospheric layer. Variability of the ionosphere can interrupt satellite communication, such as errors in GPS signals for commercial air navigation. During solar storms, this layer can even shut down communication between ground stations and satellites.

Nope. It'll compress slightly.

No. Earth's Weight and therefore centre of gravity will still be the same, therefore not affecting the atmosphere.
