Latest Current sea level rise Stories
The last stable section of the Greenland ice sheet is receding and now considered unstable – a development that could portend even more ice loss in the future and significant sea level rise.
A new report in the journal Environmental Research Letters has found that sea-level rise driven by climate change could endanger the world's cultural landmarks.
Previous instances of rapid thinning of Pine Island Glacier suggests that current ice loss in the Antarctic could continue for several more decades, a team of geologists from the US, UK and Germany report in this week’s edition of the journal Science.
Satellite observations of global sea-surface temperature show that a 30-year upward trend has slowed down within the last 15 years. Climate scientists say this is not the end of global warming, but the result of a rearrangement in the energy flow of the climate system and, in particular, how the ocean stores heat.
New research predicts that coastal regions may face massive increases in damages from storm surge flooding over the course of the 21st century.
Researchers from the University of Washington and the German Space Agency (DLR) say that a Greenland glacier is slipping off into the ocean at a speed never before seen.
A number of floating ice shelves in Antarctica are at risk of disappearing entirely in the next 200 years, as global warming reduces their snow cover.
This week, a high-precision radar instrument from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) left for Iceland to create detailed maps of how glaciers move in the dead of winter.

Antarctica’s Pine Island Glacier is now in an irreversible retreat, according to a study published in the journal Nature Climate Change.
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...
