Latest Current sea level rise Stories
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.
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).
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.
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.
Stevens Institute of Technology continues to shape the policy discussion around climate change and extreme weather, as Dr. Philip Orton and Dr.
A new dataset called Bedmap2 gives a clearer picture of Antarctica from the ice surface down to the bedrock below.
The public and policymakers alike were caught off guard when Hurricane Sandy hit the east coast of the US last fall. But the majority of the destruction came from the storm surge and flooding that followed the storm.
Ocean data collected over 135 years ago by the crew of the HMS Challenger oceanographic expedition has helped confirm global warming.
Alaska’s melting glaciers remain one of the largest contributors to the world’s rising sea levels.
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...
