Latest Current sea level rise Stories
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 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has been keeping a close eye on rising sea levels and has released several reports outlining the forecasts for the future of our world’s oceans.
An enhanced approach to capturing changes on the Earth's surface via satellite could provide a more accurate account of how ice sheets, river basins and other geographic areas are changing as a result of natural and human factors.
A rapid response between global temperatures and ice volume/sea-level that could lead to sea-levels rising by over 3 feet have been revealed by a new study from the University of Southampton.
Since 1900 the global sea level has risen by approximately 20 cm. Melting glaciers are one of the causes – along with warming and thereby expanding sea water, melting Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets, and changing terrestrial water storage in dammed lakes and groundwater reservoirs.
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...
