Latest Current sea level rise Stories
Antarctica's topography began changing from flat to fjord-filled starting about 34 million years ago, according to a new report from a University of Arizona-led team of geoscientists.
The fact sea levels could rise if the polar ice caps melt has been long established, but according to new research some regions could see greater increases than others.
According to a new technical report, the effects of climate change will continue to threaten the health and vitality of U.S. coastal communities' social, economic and natural systems.
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.
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...
