Latest Current sea level rise Stories
Glaciers are one of the largest reservoirs of freshwater on our planet, and their melting or growing is one of the best indicators of climate change.
Despite the rapid thaw of the Greenland Ice Sheet, scientists are still far from even being able to predict its disappearance.
Scientists believe they have discovered a hidden rift valley that may be contributing to ice loss in West Antarctica.
Satellites have revealed that Greenland's surface ice cover has melted this month more than any time in over 30 years of satellite observations.
The cause of rapid sea level rise in the past has been found by scientists at the University of Bristol using climate and ice sheet models.
The study is the first to give a comprehensive projection for this long perspective, based on observed sea-level rise over the past millennium, as well as on scenarios for future greenhouse-gas emissions.
First analyses of the longest sediment core ever collected on land in the terrestrial Arctic provide documentation that intense warm intervals, warmer than scientists thought possible, occurred there over the past 2.8 million years
The sea level of the eastern coast of the United States is accelerating at a much faster rate than the country's other coasts due to global warming, claim researchers from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
In the Bizarro world of climate change crusaders, what is good is bad, what is up is down, and what is hot is cold.
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...
- A morbid dread of being buried alive. Also spelled 'taphiphobia'.
