Latest Current sea level rise Stories
The continued accumulation of sand within the iconic ring-shaped reefs inside Maldivian atolls could provide a foundation for future island development new research suggests.
Researchers have found that the Pine Island glacier in the West Antarctic is melting at a rapid 2-inches per day in some spots.
The floating ice shelf in a remote region of Antarctica is being melted by warm ocean water, not hot air, an international team of researchers report in the latest edition of the journal Science.
An ambitious science mission is about to begin in Antarctica, with team members from the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) looking to understand why the continent’s Pine Island Glacier (PIG), located on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, is rapidly diminishing.
A research team led by professors at the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) has revealed that, contrary to popular belief, an ice sheet on West Antarctica existed 20 million years earlier than previously thought.
After examining other influences on shoreline change including waves, sediment supply and littoral processes, and anthropogenic changes, the best explanation for the difference in island-wide shoreline trends, such as beach erosion or accretion, is the differing rates of relative sea-level rise on Hawaiian islands.
One of the largest canyons in the world has been discovered beneath the Greenland ice sheet, according to new research appearing in the latest edition of the journal Science.
A unique and complex set of circumstances came together over Australia from 2010 to 2011 to cause Earth’s smallest continent to be the biggest contributor to the observed drop in global sea level rise during that time
When enough raindrops fall over land instead of the ocean, they begin to add up.
Climate change combined with rapid population increases, economic growth and land subsidence could lead to a more than nine-fold increase in the global risk of floods in large port cities between now and 2050.
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...
