Latest Current sea level rise Stories
A leading group of scientists and experts recently released a report that emphasizes the need for increased coordination and planning to ensure U.S. coastal communities are resilient against the effects of climate change.
A new study has traced glacial ice entering the ocean along the western Antarctic Peninsula using a unique 12,000-year record of microscopic marine algae fossils.
The uncertainty of future sea level rise is getting a little clearer thanks to research being conducted by a team of scientists.
As sea levels climb, Australia’s coastal wetlands will be increasingly trapped between urban development on land and the rising ocean, imperilling the survival of their unique plants, birds and fish.
Two professors with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have taken on a new approach to assess future sea level rise due to the world’s melting ice sheets.
Researchers have found that greenhouse gas concentrations similar to the present – almost 400 parts per million - were systematically associated with sea levels at least 30 feet above current levels.
A portion of the Antarctic ice sheet is warming nearly twice as quickly as experts had previously believed, which could increase the region's future contribution to rising sea levels, a team of researchers from the Ohio State University has discovered.
A new study showed that when sea surface temperatures increased by about 0.7 degrees Celsius during the last interglacial warm period, the Earth’s equatorial regions saw their corals shrink.
On December 6, NOAA will release a technical report that estimates global mean sea level rise over the next century based on a comprehensive synthesis of existing scientific literature.
In a new study that ends 20 years of uncertainty, an international team of satellite experts have produced the most accurate assessment of ice losses from Antarctica and Greenland to date.
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...
