Latest Current sea level rise Stories
The Antarctic Ice Sheet started melting approximately 5,000 years earlier than previously believed following the last ice age, according to new research appearing in this week’s edition of the journal Nature.
A new way of measuring sea level using satellite navigation system signals, for instance GPS, has been implemented by scientists at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden.
In 1889 and 2012, there was large-scale melting of the Greenland ice sheet, and a new study reveals that rising temperatures and ash from Northern Hemisphere forest fires combined to cause the ice melting events.
WASHINGTON, May 19, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Scientists at NASA and the University of California, Irvine (UCI), have found that canyons under Greenland's ocean-feeding glaciers are deeper
Greenland's icy reaches are far more vulnerable to warm ocean waters from climate change than had been thought, according to new research by UC Irvine and NASA glaciologists.
A rapidly melting region of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet appears to have reached an irreversible state of decline, meaning that nothing can be done to prevent the glaciers from melting into the sea.
WASHINGTON, May 12, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A new study by researchers at NASA and the University of California, Irvine, finds a rapidly melting section of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet
Scientists have developed a new method for revealing how sea levels might rise around the world throughout the 21st century to address the controversial topic of whether the rate of sea level rise is currently increasing.
A team of 74 scientists from 18 countries, mostly working on an unpaid volunteer basis, have mapped and catalogued nearly 200,000 glaciers, creating the first-ever global inventory of icebergs and ice floes.
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...
