Latest Current sea level rise Stories
With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), biogeochemists are investigating how climate change and sea level rise may impact fresh and saltwater ecosystems, such as this marsh.
Scientists have used ice-penetrating radar to create the first high- resolution topographic map of one of the last uncharted regions of Earth, the Aurora Subglacial Basin, an immense ice-buried lowland in East Antarctica larger than Texas.
With an estimated 34,000 square miles of ice, an area about the size of Maine, Alaska's multitude of glaciers have a global impact.
A report from the Australian Climate Commission has warned that â€œonce-a-centuryâ€ coastal flooding could become much more common and that the Earthâ€™s surface is warming rapidly.
The majority of seaports around the world are unprepared for the potentially damaging impacts of climate change in the coming century.
ESA's CryoSat team working on the Greenland ice sheet has been honored with a visit from a Dutch delegation including HRH Prince of Orange.
According to an international report, climate change in the Arctic could raise world sea levels to 5 feet by 2100.
According to a new study, melting glaciers and ice caps on Canadian Arctic islands play a much greater role in sea level rise than scientists previously thought.
New forecasts on rising sea levels suggest that New York will be a big loser, while some regions, including those closer to polar regions, will win big.
Ice sheets have been losing mass at an accelerated rate over the past two decades, and these changes could soon become the dominant contributor to rising global sea levels, a NASA-funded study has discovered.
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...
