Latest Current sea level rise Stories
More than 350,000 houses, business, bridges and other structures are within 500 feet of the US shoreline. Many of these, and the communities around them, are at risk from coastal erosion, flooding, extreme weather events, and sea level rises. Protection against these risks is not optional. Lives and livelihoods are in danger and something has to be done. But what are the best methods?

Extreme Heat, Shifting Precipitation Patterns and Rising Sea Levels Threaten California's Infrastructure, Agriculture, Tourism and Water Resources LOS ANGELES, April 2, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/
GREENBELT, Md., March 20, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NASA's Operation IceBridge, an airborne survey of polar ice, successfully completed its first Greenland research flight of 2015 on March
Can climate change and the melting of ice cause certain countries to disappear underwater soon? It's possible.
NEW YORK, Feb.
The glaciers along Western Antarctica are among the fastest melting in the world and a new study from researchers at the University of California, Irvine has found that the rate of melt there has tripled in the past ten years.
New research by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory suggests global ocean warming has been underestimated by 24 to 58 percent.
Water expands as it gets warmer and climatologists have suspected that warming in the deep ocean may add to rising sea levels around the world. However, a new study has found evidence that the deep ocean is not warming measurably.
Top Climate Impact Experts Provide More Accurate Coastal Risk Assessments and Cost-Effective Adaptation Solutions FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Oct.
The sea levels all around the world are rising. Current sea-level rise has the potential to affect human populations and the natural environment. Two key factors have contributed to the observed sea level rise. The first is thermal expansion: as the ocean water warms, it expands. The second is from the influence of land-based ice because of increased melting. The major store of water on land is found in the glaciers and the ice sheets. The rising of sea levels is one of several lines of...
