Latest Current sea level rise Stories
Rising sea levels in the coming centuries is perhaps one of the most catastrophic consequences of rising temperatures.
Scientists with NASA's Operation IceBridge airborne research campaign began the mission's third year of surveys this week over the changing ice of Antarctica.
Picturesque beach towns up and down the coast of California may be facing hefty economic losses caused by rising ocean levels in the next century.
Europeans face greater risk of illness, property damage and job losses because of the impacts of climate change on the seas around them.
New evidence of sea-level oscillations during a warm period that started about 125,000 years ago raises the possibility of a similar scenario if the planet continues its more recent warming trend.
An international team of scientists, led by Dr Stephen Barker of Cardiff University, has produced a prediction of what climate records from Greenland might look like over the last 800,000 years.
Like mercury in a thermometer, ocean waters expand as they warm.
NASA researchers have created the first complete map of the speed and direction of ice flow in Antarctica.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NASA-funded researchers have created the first complete map of the speed and direction of ice flow in Antarctica.
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...
