Latest Current sea level rise Stories
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.

Current changes in the ocean around Antarctica are disturbingly close to conditions 14,000 years ago that new research shows may have led to the rapid melting of Antarctic ice and an abrupt 3-4 meter rise in global sea level.
Thanks in part to support from NASA and the National Science Foundation, scientists have produced the first-ever detailed maps of bedrock beneath glaciers in Greenland and Antarctica.
The sea level around the coast of Antarctica is expected to rise faster than the projected global rate, experts from the University of Southampton report in research appearing Sunday in the advanced online edition of the journal Nature Geoscience.
A leaked copy of a United Nations report predicts “severe, irreversible and unpredictable impacts for people and ecosystems” as a result of global warming, and lays the blame for climate change on human activity and in particular on the effects of fossil fuel emissions.
Data from the European Space Agency's CryoSat-2 spacecraft has been used to map elevation and elevation changes in both Greenland and Antarctica by a team of researchers from the Alfred Wegener Institute in Germany.
Ice discharge from Antarctica could contribute up to 37 centimeters to the global sea level rise within this century, a new study shows.
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...
