Coastal Storm Damage Not As Severe Thanks To Mother Nature
2013-07-18 10:28:51

A new study shows that natural habitats such as dunes and reefs are critical to protecting millions of US residents and billions of dollars in property from coastal storms.

Rising Sea Levels Will Require Adaptation For Generations To Come

According to a new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the greenhouse gases emitted today will cause the sea level to rise for centuries to come. It is estimated each degree of global warming will raise sea levels by more than two meters.

Dunes, Reefs, and Other Habitats Vital to Protecting Millions of US Coastal Residents and Billions of Dollars in Property, says new study by The Nature Conservancy scientist Peter Kareiva.

Satellite Data Not Enough Predict Ice Cap Melt
2013-07-15 09:38:00

New research from a team of European scientists has found there isn't enough satellite data to determine the rate of polar ice cap melt very far into the future and warned against using current trends to predict sea level rise that might result from melting glaciers.

Surface Melt Will Continue To Dominate Greenland Ice-Loss
2013-07-10 15:13:45

Greenland's ice sheet is considered an important potential contributor to future global sea-level rise over the next century or longer. It contains an amount of ice that could lead to a rise of global sea level by more than 22 feet if it completely melted.

Massive Iceberg Breaks Off Pine Island Glacier In Antarctica

One of the Earth's most watched glaciers, Pine Island Glacier (PIG), has released a massive iceberg about eight times the size of Manhattan Island, according to images released by the German Space Agency (DLR).

New Report Says Sea Level Along Maryland's Shorelines Could Rise Two Feet By 2050

A new report on sea level rise recommends that the State of Maryland should plan for a rise in sea level of as much as 2 feet by 2050.

Basal Melt Responsible For Antarctic Ice Shelf Loss
2013-06-14 06:20:18

The majority of Antarctica’s ice loss is caused by warm ocean waters eating away at the undersides of ice shelves, not the sudden release and breaking away of ice masses from glaciers.

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...
