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.

Current Sea Level Rise
2013-04-01 10:39:21

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...
