Latest Current sea level rise Stories
Sea levels could be rising faster than scientists originally believed, thanks to the warming subsurface waters that could cause more rapid melting of ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica.
A consistent link exists between changes in global mean surface temperature and sea level, resulting in a greater rate of sea-level rise along the US Atlantic coast than that of the past 2,000 years.
A new survey of barrier islands published earlier this spring offers the most thorough assessment to date of the thousands of small islands that hug the coasts of the world's landmasses.
Venice â€“ the City of Dreams â€“ may have one less nightmare to deal with following a finding that the frequency of extreme storm surge events generated by Adriatic Sea tempests could fall by about 30 percent by 2100.
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.
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...
